The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses.

Merryweather Dennis GLW 424 Bristol City
Someone else named BOB reminded us that Bristol ran a war time Merryweather Dennis Turntable Ladder truck GLW424, so just in case he didn't have a photo of it I thought I'd share one that was given to me a long time ago by a fellow firematics enthusiast. His name was John Hughes, a police officer with the City of Cardiff. John was always ready to share with me and others, and he was the recipient of many of my California fire apparatus slides, so I'm sure that if he was still with us today he would be only too happy to share on this site. There's nothing worse than having albums of great pictures that no one wants to see.
This machine is virtually identical to the one I've posted from Scotland.
