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

Fire Brigade street fire alarm call post

A passer-by pulls a fire alarm to notify the fire brigade of an incident. By the outbreak of the First World War the London Fire Brigade area was well covered with electric fire alarms. On breaking the glass cover, the brass handle was pulled and this would register at the fire station the precise location of the alarm. The instruction on the alarm says: ?Wait for Engine?, so that the caller could then direct the crew into action
