Fire at 298 Old Brompton Road, London SW5

Fire at 298 Old Brompton Road, London SW5, 25 February 1956. An escape ladder is extended to the second floor, with Sub Officer Kirby of A9 Fulham carrying a 19-month-old child, Dennis Norman McGowan, down in his arms, and Sub Officer Temple following. The child had been left in his cot in the front room before the fire started. At this stage the strings of the ladder were smouldering which, together with the heat and smoke from the shop, made the situation extremely dangerous. The child's mother waits in the foreground to be reunited with her son.

Firefighting training display at Southwark Headquarters

Over 100 years ago, the London Fire Brigade encouraged a good public image, often opening its doors to exercises and special training events. Here a Saturday afternoon summer display at Southwark Headquarters draws an attentive boater-hatted crowd to see jets of water pointing down towards the centre of the courtyard.
