LCC-LFB Tooley Street fire station and its crews

Built in 1879, and located at 165 Tooley Street, this station remained operational until 1928 when the new Dockhead fire station was opened and the engines and crews transferred there. This building still stands in Tooley Street today. A Dennis pump and pump escape are pictured and a child can be seen at a first floor window (the firemen lived at the station along with their families).

British bid for the World's non-stop flight record 1927

The Hawker Horsley (named after Sir Thomas Sopwith's home of Horsley Towers), was a British single-engined biplane bomber of the 1920s. It was the last all wooden aircraft built by Hawker Aircraft, and served as a medium day bomber and torpedo bomber with Britain's Royal Air Force between 1926 and 1935. Pictured here, the Hawker Horsley attempting a non-stop flight to India, 4000 miles. Specially modified aircraft, carrying much more fuel, took off from RAF Cranwell on 20 May 1927, flown by Flight Lieutenants Roderick Carr and L.E.M Gillmann. Date: 1927
