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

Jezebel, 1916 Dennis, Pumping at Kew
Jezebel, a 1916 Dennis 'N' Type, pumps gently at the annual FSPG event at Kew Bridge Steam Museum. The pump is a Dennis No. 2 attached in the late 80s. The original Gwynne pump was removed in the 1940s after the priming gear failed.
Jez has been resident at Imperial College in South Kensington since 1955 and is cared for by a loving team of current and former students.
