That's the difficulty with applying today's methodology to the pictures of the past. Speed wasn't an issue, neither was energy consumption. Being 'modern' was clearly as important back then as it is today as these things existed along with horse and cart and petrol engined road transport along with steam and electric trains.No real consideration for speed and maneuverability or energy consumption in relation to weight like when designing modern vehicles, which suggests that whoever designed them had no clue what they were doing, it just "worked".
