London Fire Brigade pump damaged by fire

A London Fire Brigade pump damaged by a dramatic fire which took place on the night of 15 August 1920 on the Thames at Woolwich, SE London. The barge Dorcas, laden with several thousand gallons of petrol, caught fire, burned though her mooring ropes and, drifting in the tide, blazed furiously. The Dorcas collided with and set fire to two tugs, Woolwich Pier and nine other barges, a ferryboat and several buildings before grounding on the shore. By then ten London Fire Brigade pumps were waiting, but as they got to work the Dorcas blew up with flames 300 feet high. Although there were no serious injuries, firefighters had to abandon three pumps, which were all burnt out. Here are the remains of one

A horse-drawn 50 foot wheeled escape ladder and five man crew in Southwark Headquarters drill yard. These escape ladders could be very quickly slipped by the crew and extended up to a window. Their sole purpose was rescue, and these units, one of which was based at each fire station, carried no firefighing equipment. There were no warning devices to help them through London's traffic ? the crew would should ?Hi! Hi! Hi!? to clear the way. The firefighter on the left has his right hand on the brake lever and would operate this during the exciting dash to the fire

LCC-LFB Downham fire station, Lewisham, SE London

London was expanding and the London Fire Brigade had to meet the expansion. The Downham Estate, in SE London, was the London County Council's largest social housing development (Council Estate) on the London and Kent (Bromley) border. Downham fire station, with its single engine, was erected in Reigate Road, on the Downham Estate, to provide fire cover for a much greater life risk than had previously existed. It still stands, although much modernised, in the same location today
