    Scope & contentMilling in 1901 (page 409) provided a photograph and comment on seven UK flour mills that had recently been upgraded with Simon machinery and systems. Outputs ranged from 5 – 30 sacks per hour, reinforcing the general view that in 1901 British mill owners were moving to cope with the competition that existed in their several markets. All these mills originally contained complete roller mill plants or combinations of machinery on other systems.
