When he saw the dust collected on the handkerchief, he knew what he was doing. His original design, known as "Puffing Billy" - Powered by a huge engine, must be pulled by a horse and stopped outside the house for cleaning.
Booth founded the British vacuum cleaner company in 1903. Uniformed experts pull a Puffing Billy in a red van and pull the hose through the doors and windows into the customer's house.
The upper class was very admirable, and the British royal family was among his clients, which cleaned up the carpet of Westminster Cathedral before the coronation ceremony of Edward VII.

He also built a bridge in England, France and Austria, designed the Royal Navy warship engine and made Ferris wheel. He died in Croydon, England in January 14, 1955.
