LCC-LFB Fireman in his fire kit with new cork helmet

A London fireman in his fire kit, including the new style compressed cork helmet with its LFB crest, which replaced the traditional brass helmets used since the days of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The change was necessary because of the risk of electrocution with the brass helmet and the greater strength, protection and lightness offered by the new helmet

Disguising a German Shop - Start of WWI Featured Print

Disguising a German Shop - Start of WWI

Postcard sent within six weeks of the start of WWI, depicting a German Shopkeeper in Britain hastily changing the livery of his store to something perfectly British! The pseudo-germanic English signs and the shopkeepr's appearance revel his true identity. A superb comment on the Germanophobia which swept Britain at the start of WWI. Date: 1914
