The inventor allowed London Metropolitan Railway to use electric locomotives on rail and underground lines.
Thomas Parker built the world's first electric car in 1884. The inventor as a curious, knowledgeable, honest person, with the goal of his childhood which was turning the world into a better place to live, made a lot of succeeding inventions: developed lighting systems, made public transportation vehicles working with smokeless – electrical - fuels.
Sarah Parker wrote for Thomas Parker’s memory:
“...While science yields electric thrills,
While engineering glory,
The world to mighty deeds shall press,
The name shall live in story...”
