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. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Here's the first of some more shots of City & County of Kingston Upon Hull Fire Brigade appliances taken the late 1960's. Many thanks for the kind comments on the previous postings. This was taken on the same day in 1968 as the other colour views of this machine. A fireman took it into the yard at West Hull and elevated and extended the ladder for my father.
