Fireboat tackling fire at Colonial Wharf, East London Featured LFB Print

Fireboat tackling fire at Colonial Wharf, East London

A fireboat tackles a fire at Colonial Wharf, Wapping High Street, East London, 27 September 1935. This was a typical big Thamesside fire of the sort which the London Fire Brigade has tackled for over 100 years. The nine-storey warehouse was full of crude rubber and burned for four days, during which time a number of explosions took place. Sixty pumps, 20 special appliances and three fireboats, manned in all by 600 firefighters, fought the huge blaze: they successfully prevented the fire from spreading to the surrounding warehouses

LFB and the Blitz - Queen Victoria Street

The moment that an unsupported front wall of a building, severely damaged by fire, dramatically collapsed into the street. The picture is credited to the Metropolitan Police photographic service although it was widely used in London Fire Brigade coverage of the Blitz in London. The fire was the result of a heavy bombing raid the night before

LCC-MFB Headquarters station at Southwark SE1

The Metropolitan Fire Brigade was created in 1866, having replaced the former London Fire Engine Establishment brigade. It moved from its former Watling Street HQ to the Southwark site due to the vast expansion of the Brigade. Its first Chief Officer, Captain Eyre Massey Shaw, had this complex built as the new headquarters and No 1 fire station. It remained the Brigade Headquarters until 1937 when a new headquarters was opened in Lambeth. The gothic style frontage was demolished in the late 1960s by the Greater London Council but the fire station (now a museum) remains standing today
