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.

LCC-LFB Dual purpose pump escape at Lambeth HQ

A Dennis F7 pump escape at Lambeth HQ, a classic postwar fire engine newly in service in London. It was powered by a 150 bhp 5.7 litre Rolls-Royce engine and served initially at Lambeth Fire Station, and latterly at other fire stations in SE London until it was retired in 1968. The F7 was a truly beautiful looking fire engine with a coach-built body and a fine road performance. Many F7s went into service in fire brigades throughout the UK
