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

Dennis F7 PE East Ham FB
1949 appliance taken in front of the old 1914 East Ham fire station High Street South, London E6. The building survives. After it closed in the 60s it was converted to council offices, together with the firemen's accommodation just round the corner in Nelson Street. In the last three years both buildings have been converted to residential by a council owned company, Red Door ventures that provides market rent accommodation.
Note the odd roof sign on this F7.
