1867 Seth Taylor unveils and drives his Steam Buggy, Canada's first automobile, at the Stanstead Fair.

Designed by Henry Seth Taylor, a jeweller and clockmaker from Stanstead, Quebec, the Steam Buggy took five years to design and two years to build. However, after a hose burst during a public event, and the Buggy crashed at another, Taylor abandoned automobile production altogether.
