LCC-LFB Change from brass to cork fire helmets Featured Print

LCC-LFB Change from brass to cork fire helmets

A significant landmark when on 14 July 1934 the LFB started to replace its traditional brass helmet with a new compressed cork design. It would be four years before the changeover was completed. The death of a firefighter, when his brass helmet touched a live cable during firefighting operations, brought about the policy change. Here the brass helmet, introduced by Captain Eyre Massey Shaw (Metropolitan Fire Brigade), a symbol of London's firemen for over seventy years, meets a modern, safer replacement.

Aftermath of the Crystal Palace fire on 30th November 1936 Featured Print

Aftermath of the Crystal Palace fire on 30th November 1936

The aftermath of the Crystal Palace fire on 30th November 1936, showing the remains of a concrete wall, turned into rubble by the fire. The long pillar in the middle is of cast iron, which has bent but not cracked. The Crystal Palace was built for the Great Exhibition in 1851, in Hyde Park. It was then dismantled after the exhibition, and reconstructed in Sydenham Hill, South London, where it stayed until its destruction. All that remains today are the water towers and the gardens, now Crystal Palace Park.
