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

When I first seen this I thought it was from Manchester, where I last seen one like it.
I was able to chat very briefly with the driver, who told me he was on his way to Ireland from Southampton, to fill steam engines with water. This appliance is no longer owned by any local brigade
