An electrostatographic apparatus having a flexible web or belt imaging member adapted to pass over a pair of supporting rollers and a liquid development assembly having a liquid de-veloper applicator roll in contact with the imaging surface between the supporting rollers to apply liquid developer to the imaging surface are disclosed. The liquid developer applicator roll in contact with the imaging surface between the supporting rollers is positioned so that tension is applied to the imaging surface by the liquid developer appli-cator roll. The development assembly comprises a reservoir receptacle having a liquid developer applicator roll member which may be movable into and out of contact with the surface of a flexible imaging member. The receptacle may be fixedly mounted, as shown in Figure 1, or it may be movably mounted by support means including one arm to suspend the liquid development assembly from a fixed support as shown in Figure
