    I remember Denny sausages when I was young - they were nice. Are they still sold under the Denny brandname? Stuart.

    Absolutely! See www.denny.ie, although their website seems a little glitchy today.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Thank you. I've tried www.denny.ie and their website is looking somewhat funky. Bad PR for a good company! I buy Denny's Butcher Style black and white puddings as I find them the nicest. However, I've not seen either of them on sale for some months now. Their standard black and white puddings are crap like the other brands so I don't buy them. Regards. Stuart.

    I grew up in the Limerick of the 40's and 50's and there were several bacon and sausage making factories in the city at that time. The sausage making rooms looked just like this and the scales are right for the period stu, avery were very modern and up to date in their design!

    Are you happy enough, swordscookie, that these would have been Avery Scales? If you are, I'll add a tag - no pressure then! :)

    The pressure got to me so I asked someone who would have known these rooms and the answer I got was either Berkel or Avery and now that I look at them again Berkel is the name that seems most likely!

    I remember Denny's factory in Morgan street and the condensation that would fall like rain from the plume of steam coming from the big chimney. This is an advertisement for Henry Denny & Sons Ltd. from around 1930 Henry Denny & Sons

    I though this picture might be subtle comment on this one (education often being described by cynics as a 'sausage factory', a rather unpleasant process designed to turn out the same identical product again and again)

    One of the weighing scales is definitely a W&T Avery There is an old-fashioned lineshaft which is driving machinery through leather belts. Small electric motors are driving high-speed machines through thin belts. I wonder how many accidents were caused?
