LCC-LFB Merryweather self-propelled Fire King pump Featured 6 Dec 2011 Image

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 Islington fire station stables -- Kruger Featured 6 Dec 2011 Image

LCC-LFB Islington fire station stables -- Kruger

Islington fire station stables, Upper Street, showing a white horse named Kruger. The station opened in 1899. Horses would remain in use in the London Fire Brigade until 1921, although motorised fire engines were being introduced into the service in increasing numbers from the early 1900s. Kruger is shown ready for action, wearing the quick release harness developed for fire brigade use so as not to delay the turnout of the engines. Coachmen were designated firemen responsible for driving the horse drawn engines and caring for the horses at the scene of a fire. Station stalls were either within or adjacent to the engine room for the duty horses. The stables formed part of the general station layout

LFB firefighters and winter snows, WW2 Featured 6 Dec 2011 Image

LFB firefighters and winter snows, WW2

The early winters of WW2 were snowy with numerous falls of 1-2 feet and occasional falls (such as 1940-41) in which snow depths of up to 16 feet (drifts) were recorded. The South was quite badly affected, although more particularly the South-West and Wales. 1939-40 saw the supposed blizzard of the decade in Scotland and England when in late January snow fell widely. The wartime firemen were kept busy keeping their station yards free of snow
