Hi there from across the pond

I've seen discussions about London engines on here in the past, with members wondering if they were actually just a rebadged Novo.
This picture has appeared over here in the UK recently which shows the London works in Ontario.

It clearly shows the companys assembly room & machine shop at the factory & proves that they did build their own engines

London engines are VERY rare here in the UK & little information is known about them - that one is my own which is now restored & in perfect working order.

One thing I've always had difficulty with is finding a good original image of the decal on the side. However I've now after a great deal of hunting I feel I've got enough info to get some fairly accurate new copy's made. I notice that none are for sale over there, so when they are done will anyone over there be interested in buying any?

Steven
