Louis Boirault Machine :
The Boirault machine, was an early French experimental land ship, designed in 1914 and built in early 1915. It has been considered as “another interesting ancestor of the tank”, and described as a “rhomboid-shaped skeleton tank without armour, with single overhead track”. Ultimately, the machine was deemed impractical and was nicknamed Diplodocus militaris. www.g1886.com G #1886 is a #Technology Blog that covers #1880s to #1980s.  #Industrial Gilded Age and High tech #Victorian Age.  The Roaring Twenties and Art Deco.  Influential visual arts design style, referencing contemporary #history of Machine Age.
