These engines were made by a series of companies in Rosebery, Sydney. There were several “Rosebery” engines, including an older finned cylinder vertical, a horizontal hopper style (sometime branded “Champion”), and several variations of the vertical tank and hopper cooled type in 2, 3, 4 and 6 horsepower.
