The rotary snow plough was invented in 1869 by Toronto dentist J.W.Elliot although he never actually built one. It wasn't until 1883-84 that Orange Jull of Orangeville, Ontario contracted with Leslie Brothers of Toronto to build one that was successfully operated in Parkdale on the old TG&B Wharf lead. Jull later sold his design rights to Leslie Brothers, who formed the Rotary Steam Shovel Manufacturing Company in Paterson, New Jersey. Leslie Brothers contracted with Cooke Locomotive & Machine Works in Paterson to do the actual construction.
