Self-propelled fire engine at LFB HQ, Southwark

The Hatfield motor pump was the first petrol driven engine appliance in which the engine was used to operate the fire pump. Two of these machines were purchased in 1908 and were an improvement on all previous types, gradually superseding the stream fire engine

LCC-LFB Dennis open pump escape at a fire station

Readying for the outbreak of WW2, a regular London pump-escape pictured with the wartime fire appliances which would greatly outnumber the pre-1938 London appliance fleet. The red engines would soon be repainted in their wartime livery of Battleship Grey, remaining that colour until 1948, after the National Fire Service was disbanded and fire brigades returned to local authority control

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
