Here’s Something New in Barrows (Sep, 1932)

Here’s Something New in Barrows
FANTASTIC in appearance, though extremely practical in operation, is a novel type of wheelbarrow developed by an English workingman. Instead of having a wheel on front, as all law-abiding wheelbarrows have, this new thing, shown below, has one huge drum, which practically surrounds the body of the barrow. When the operator pushes on the handles, the drum revolves, but the container section moves forward on a track within the huge wheel. Freakish as the device seems, however, it actually has advantages. For instance, it doesn’t topple over easily, always keeping the right side up.
