archivingindustry.com, created in 2008, currently welcomes more seventy thousand visitors annually. The site replaced ‘bollee.fsnet.co.uk’, which attempted to continue industrial-heritage conservation work begun in the University of Brighton in 2000. This was subsequently expanded to include studies of the engine indicator; the French-made Éolienne Bollée; the German cutlery, razor and toolmaking industries; and small firearms.
In its earliest stages, the indicator website was supported by the British Engineerium. Unfortunately, the closure of the Engineerium in December 2005 (and its subsequent sale) left a void that had proved difficult to fill until the Canadian Museum of Making very generously came to the rescue late in 2006.
