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. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model.

Open South African Dennis
There has been some recemt discussion of the open South African Brewries Dennis pump ( picture #3880
). The South African fire brigades had been long time users of Dennis appliances and in the photograph above we see another of their traditional style open pumps before shipping to its final destination. Notice the Dennis factory bicyle sheds in the background. This photograph is reproduced by the courtesy of Dennis Bros., Guildford.
