GLC-LFB - Foam Tender at East Ham Featured Print

GLC-LFB - Foam Tender at East Ham

The GLC-LFB was created on 1 April 1965. A series of photos was commissioned of each type of fire engine, either within or absorbed into the enlarged London Fire Brigade. A mechanical bulk foam tender from East Ham fire station (L21) is seen here at a fire station. The Bedford lorry with a foam tank on the back had its own fire pump and foam generator. Originally this fire engine was stationed in the West Ham fire brigade, whose stations were absorbed into the London Fire Brigade in 1965.

Fire at 298 Old Brompton Road, London SW5 Featured Print

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.

LCC- MFB Blackheath fire station

Blackheath fire station, located at Brigade Street, Tranquil Vale, SE3 (very near the Mary Evans Picture Library), with the escape ladder stored at the side. On the roof of the station can be seen the telegraph aerial connecting the station to the headquarters at Southwark. Also on the roof and overhanging the side of the building are the pulleys to which the hoses are attached, raised on ropes, where they are allowed to dry. The building still stands today.
