Sir Roger's engine and pump.

Another view of Type 'N' Engine.
This is another view of the Dennis Type 'N' Engine that such yeoman service for so many years with Fire Brigades around the British Isles.

The photo above is of a Gwynne three stage pump that could deliver between 500 and 1000 gallons of water per minute. Also it was able to lift water from the river Thames while sitting on top of Cookham Toll Bridge. This was a lift of some 30 feet, and was a rare feet in those days.
