1914 - Towards the end of 1913 Horace Caldwell Wright formerly a buyer of the great Chicago hardware firm of Hibbard, Spencer Bartlett & Co was ask to go to Australia and manage the Cooper Engineering Co. At the beginning of 1914 Mr. M. W. McArdle arrived in Australia with Mr. H. C. Wright. William G. Hodge becomes the assistant manager of company. Mr. McArdle stays on in Sydney for a few weeks and an intensive advertising campaign is carried out to increase the sales of machinery. This looks to explain the December 1914 ad in ?The Pastoral Review?, see comment under Fairbanks Morse engines, In August of 1914 Roland Harry Harrowell, who was the Livestock editor of the Livestock Australasian Pastoral Review and the son of Henry Harrowell, became the Sydney manager of Wm Cooper & Nephews.
 
So this Engine could very well have played a role in his marketing campaign ???.

 Full History can be done as it arrived via Steam Assisted Sailing Ship to Townsville Port or [ Port Denison       Bowen QLD ].

Should just work on the arc of the rocker arm.
This is a Type W which I imagine is very similar.

Cheers,
