LCC-MFB Cherry Garden river fire station, SE London Featured Print

LCC-MFB Cherry Garden river fire station, SE London

Built by the London County Council, Cherry Garden river fire station was located at Cherry Garden Street in Bermondsey. It was one of four Metropolitan Fire Brigade river stations and, from 1904, the London Fire Brigade. Fireboat Delta was stationed here, followed later by its replacement Gamma III. Although no land fire engines were stationed at Cherry Garden, as can be seen the station maintained a wheeled escape and a hose cart, together with two hook ladders. It remained open until 1948 when, after the fire service was denationalised, London's river service came under review. Cherry Garden was deemed unnecessary and was closed.

Benz Motor Car of 1888 Featured Print

Benz Motor Car of 1888

The Benz Patent-Motorwagen Number 3 of 1888 - probably the first petrol car brought into England. A three-wheeled vehicle with a horizontal single cylinder motor. This vehicle was used by Bertha Benz for the first long distance journey by automobile (more than 106 km or sixty miles). Without her husband's prior knowledge, she drove 106km to visit her Mother, stopping at Pharmacies en route for fuel and in turn inventing brake pad lining to solve the tricky situation of braking on hills!! Date: 1888

Major Powell-Cotton was the VAD Transport Officer for the Isle of Thanet area, responsible for organising the transport of patients from the stations to the local hospitals. Date: circa 1916
