LCC-LFB Islington fire station stables
Islington's first fire station opened in 1860 in Florence Street. The station pictured here was located in Upper Street, and opened in 1899. Horses would remain in use in the London Fire Brigade until 1921, although motorised fire engine were being introduced into the service in increasing numbers from the early 1900s. Coachmen were designated firemen responsible for driving the horse drawn engines, and the horses were stabled at the fire station in stalls within or adjacent to the engine room.
