LCC-MFB Kensington fire station, W London

The appliance room of the former Kensington fire station which was located in King Street, W8. It was built in 1871 and closed in 1905 when the new Kensington fire station was opened. This picture was taken in the latter days of the station's life as the sliding pole (right of picture) was not introduced until 1904. This station was subsequently demolished.

Invention of the Cube Car

Invention of the Cube Car. This box-like car, designed by French-Vietnamese designer and engineer Quasar Kahn (seen here driving), was produced in limited numbers between 1967 and 1968 by Universal Power Drives of Perivale, Middlesex, who also made the Unipower sports car. The car had a unique cube-like appearance, with sliding glass doors. It is probably unique amongst car designs in being wider than it is long. The seats were plastic and inflatable. The engine was a four cylinder 1100 cc BMC model with automatic transmission. Modified Mini subframes carried the suspension components and 10-inch Mini wheels were used. Date: 1967

LCC-LFB Fireman using the sliding pole

Following a visit to the United States, the Chief Officer (Captain Eyre Massey Shaw) saw these devices in American firehouses, and brought the idea into his own fire stations. Initially the poles just went through a hole in the upper floor. However after a couple of accidents the pole holes were protected to stop such accidents.
