LCC-LFB Merryweather self-propelled Fire King pump

First introduced into the UK by Merryweather of Greenwich, SE London, in 1899, by 1907 twenty-one Fire Kings were in operational use around the country, including the London Fire Brigade. A modified Fire King was stationed at Whitefriars fire station in the City of London. The Fire King could travel at a speed of 20-30 mph but was unable to negotiate a significant gradient without stopping to build a sufficient head of steam. Seen here with crew at the London Fire Brigade headquarters, Southwark SE1

LCC-LFB First fireboats in the London Fire Brigade

A fire float and tug were first introduced in 1877 and used until 1900 when they were replaced by shallow draft fireboats. Whilst the fire float was only a fire pump mounted in a barge which the tug transported to the scene of the fire, the Brigade introduced self-propelled steam fireboats and soon acquired three of these: Alpha, Beta and Gamma. The fireboat pictured is Beta, moored by Charing Cross railway bridge on the River Thames
