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
Fire Engine Photos
Coventry Climax Fire Pump
Photo taken at Salts Mill complex, Saltaire, West Yorks. (A World Heritage site). Pump used by George Mallinson and Sons of Huddersfield. Mallinsons were a very large wooden and worsted mill, like Salt’s.
Oddly there was another George Mallinson and Sons in Huddersfield, a chemical works. But I think this pump would belong to the woollen mill. Other photos posted.
