That is what I also thought Jerry - very distinctive backflash

I don't remember seeing handles like those on the machines in the photo. Then today I was sent this photo and, although not exactly the same, they could be the same maker(?)

Screen Snapshots is almost certainly by Tom Boland of Leeds.

Not the hardest assumption to make, although I wonder if the case is newer.

Paul,

This is a fairly standard Bolands machine and probably original case wrapped in later Formica or similar, but am sure Patrick will update his Facebook group with info pics as he restores. Handle is also one of their standard types, look through boland thread you will see lots of them.....

I can't find anything further regarding 'BRENN' on the original photo, but it looks as though the illuminated top-box is part of the package.

That is what I meant. It possible the handles on the original photo are on old Boland mechs recased yet again?

Good point to make.
There are many newer collectors who wouldn't know that.
