Fire at 298 Old Brompton Road, London SW5

Fire at 298 Old Brompton Road, London SW5, 25 February 1956. An escape ladder is extended to the second floor, with Sub Officer Kirby of A9 Fulham carrying a 19-month-old child, Dennis Norman McGowan, down in his arms, and Sub Officer Temple following. The child had been left in his cot in the front room before the fire started. At this stage the strings of the ladder were smouldering which, together with the heat and smoke from the shop, made the situation extremely dangerous. The child's mother waits in the foreground to be reunited with her son.

Boys on an 18th century fire engine, Wirksworth

Boys playing on an 18th century fire engine at Wirksworth, Derbyshire. It was believed to be the oldest fire engine in England, dating back to 1721, made by Newsome. Its most recent use had been to facilitate the washing of windows, but the Town Surveyor had offered it to the South Kensington Museum (Victoria and Albert Museum) as it was older than any fire engine held there.
