LCC-LFB Dual purpose pump escape at Lambeth HQ
A Dennis F7 pump escape at Lambeth HQ, a classic postwar fire engine newly in service in London. It was powered by a 150 bhp 5.7 litre Rolls-Royce engine and served initially at Lambeth Fire Station, and latterly at other fire stations in SE London until it was retired in 1968. The F7 was a truly beautiful looking fire engine with a coach-built body and a fine road performance. Many F7s went into service in fire brigades throughout the UK.

A smiling policeman sees them across a zebra crossing, while a Rolls Royce waits for them to cross.
