Beauty - the Dennis F2 is so uncluttered and simply functional.
I take it, that it is midship pump, between the 2 bench seats ?

Pat_R-B, do you like the 'chunder' colour of the two pumps to the left of the pump escape? Reminds me of some of my nights out in Kuta (Bali) when I was a bit of a scully-wag!!

Pavel; yes, those 2 Pumpers definitely have a very "busy" visual aspect, as required for today's world. That 'yellow' definitely grabs the eye-ball.
Certainly emphasizes The Old Girl's classic looks and simple operation. Even "the audible warning device" [the bell!] looks to be hand-operated, judging by its bell-lanyard, which would be a nice piece of fancy-work in it-self.
And, a hand-crank for emergency starting, in event of the electrics failing....
