As I was passing by the town of Valenciennes, I saw this very old steam roller rusting quietly in the grass. I’ve never seen such an old one with an open cabin and looking so quaint. Its wheels and all its parts were covered with rust like a distasteful plague and it looked totally abandoned like a remain of an ancient time where things didn’t go as fast as today. There was no question about drawing out my sketchbook and grab its image for my memories. I hope you’ll enjoy it as well. You can even hear its sound by watching the video below.
