Built by the London County Council, Kennington fire station was located in Renfrew Road, Lower Kennington, South London. Seen here are its horse drawn escape ladder and steamer together with the hand pulled hose cart in front of the station. On one side is the station superintendent, and above is the illuminated night sign which says FIRE ENGINES.

LCC-LFB Fire display at Brigade HQ Southwark

The London Fire Brigade encouraged, for very many years, a good public image by opening its doors to the public to special fire brigade displays. On Saturday afternoons, during the summer months, it was a regular feature to see displays at the Southwark Headquarters. As the picture shows it drew large, and frequently a boater-hatted, crowds. A motorised fire engine works two firefighting jets, while a turntable ladder is fully extended to the top of the drill tower. Where there was space to stand and watch the public took every opportunity to do so.
