Locomobile was one of the 2 companies which resulted from the purchase of Stanley brothers steam car design rights in 1899 by A. L. Barber & J.B. Walker. Walker separated from Barber and formed the Mobile Concern, while his former partner did good business with the little Locomobile Steam Runabout. It consisted of bicycle frame work, carriage body, twin-cylinder simple engine, 14 inch boiler (under driver's seat), tiller-steering, and chain drive. The boiler had to be refilled every 20 miles.
