We uploaded a newly converted version of the c.1935 Sun cine-film. It is in MP4 format, and we recommend that you allow it to download at least 75% before starting to watch it. Download takes about 20 minutes, and viewing time is approx. 8 minutes.
Please note that this new version is a little slower and therefore a shade more realistic than the old one. It's also a larger image.
More details have been added. If you were an employee, please make sure that you are listed and that your information is correct.

The Way of the Sun, the definitive history of the Sun (limited edition)
This is the first-ever full-length history of Sun Engraving / Sun Printers, by Peter Greenhill and Brian Reynolds. A handsome, hard-cover book (416 pages), it contains hundreds of photographs in colour and black & white, many never-before published. The book will be of great interest to former employees, their families, relatives, and friends. Those interested in Watford's history or the influence of the Sun on the development of mass-market colour printing will also find the book informative and enlightening.
!!! Copies are still available but are now in short supply.
They are available in Croxley as well as by post. Price is £22 (plus P&P where necessary).
