Fireboat tackling fire at Colonial Wharf, East London Featured London Fire Brigade 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

LCC-LFB Islington fire station stables

Islington's first fire station opened in 1860 in Florence Street. The station pictured here was located in Upper Street, and opened in 1899. Horses would remain in use in the London Fire Brigade until 1921, although motorised fire engine were being introduced into the service in increasing numbers from the early 1900s. Coachmen were designated firemen responsible for driving the horse drawn engines, and the horses were stabled at the fire station in stalls within or adjacent to the engine room

LCC-MFB Headquarters station at Southwark SE1 Featured London Fire Brigade Print

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
