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

Leyland Interim Beaver Merryweather TL GXA Dudley
Leyland Interim Beaver Merryweather Turntable Ladder GXA 83 in the High Street in Dudley. The machine is being using during an Auxiliary Fire Service recruitment campaign and the boards advertise the film, “Red Skies of Montana”, released February 1952 and being shown at The Gaumont. This suggests the photo was taken early 1952.
