These cement mixers are copied from my Contractor's Equipment Co. Catalog. No date in the catalog but I am guessing around 1910 as many of the equipment in this catalog matches stuff in met fairbanks Morris catalog of 1910.

I'm old enough to remember steam powered most of any thing.  Steam rollers, steam shovels, steam tractors were all pretty common when I was a kid.
