The story of Kelly’s Contraption
John B. Kelly was a steam engine genius, engineer and inventor who built a working automobile in Blyth, Ontario in 1883, four years before Henry Ford. The weird, unpainted contraption was fitted with iron artillery wheels and made such a racket that it frightened horses and was eventually banned from the mud streets.
