Merryweathers Steam Fire-Engine - Merryweather & Sons of Lambeth, later Greenwich
Merryweather's Steam Fire-Engine - Merryweather & Sons of Lambeth, later Greenwich, London, were builders of steam fire engines and steam tram engines. The founder was Moses Merryweather (1791-1872) of Clapham, who was joined by Richard Moses (1839-1877). They took Edward Field's design of a vertical boiler and successfully applied it for use in their steam fire engine, thus improving water pressure and making easier to use once steam had been got up.
