Guy, is it possible to get a larger copy of this page in order to read the text and get a better look at the photo?

All the best

David

Yes please, if possible.

The engine looks to have been built by Clapp & Jones, which agrees with what the text says.

All the best

Dean, would love to see some photos of the Clapp & Jones. Do you have a serial no. for it or any history as to where it spent its working life?

All the best
