No 56 - "UNITY"

Many thanks to Cynthia Kimpton, (a descendant of WA Kimpton in New Zealand who provided this photo) who operated 4 Fowell machines
He had 46, 56 and 59 as second hand machines and bought 81 new.

Unfortunately 81 was the one with a blowhole in the casting and used huge quantities of coal and water.

It probably put him off buying any more Fowell machines!

The maker's plate had been replaced by a similar one for Mr Kimpton.

You can cantact Cynthia
