LCC-LFB Islington fire station stables -- Kruger

Islington fire station stables, Upper Street, showing a white horse named Kruger. The station opened in 1899. Horses would remain in use in the London Fire Brigade until 1921, although motorised fire engines were being introduced into the service in increasing numbers from the early 1900s. Kruger is shown ready for action, wearing the quick release harness developed for fire brigade use so as not to delay the turnout of the engines. Coachmen were designated firemen responsible for driving the horse drawn engines and caring for the horses at the scene of a fire. Station stalls were either within or adjacent to the engine room for the duty horses. The stables formed part of the general station layout.

LCC-LFB Commercial building fire, Avery Hardoll, Eltham

LFB firefighters in action at a commercial building fire in Avery Hardoll, Eltham, SE London. The fire started in a former shop and dwelling which had been converted into a commercial undertaking. The lack of adequate fire stop doors allowed the fire to spread right along the row of properties and caused a major fire which both London and Kent fire brigades attended.
