EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative photograph, a Dennis hose-laying lorry from the Lee Green fire station in London stands proudly at Brigade Headquarters in Lambeth, SE1. The year is 1963, and the 1960s are in full swing. The Dennis hose-laying lorry, a vital piece of firefighting equipment, is shown with its one mile of 3.5-inch hose coiled neatly on the bed of the vehicle. This hose could be laid out as the lorry drove along the required water relay route, ensuring a continuous water supply for fire engines during prolonged firefighting operations. The Dennis hose-laying lorry was a crucial addition to the London Fire Brigade's fleet, enabling firefighters to reach remote locations or areas with limited water supplies quickly. The vehicle's versatility and efficiency were essential in the fast-paced world of firefighting. The image captures the essence of the London Fire Brigade's commitment to providing the best possible service to its community. The lorry, with its distinctive Dennis livery, is a testament to the innovation and technology that underpinned the Brigade's operations during this era. The hose-laying lorry, along with other fire engines and vehicles, were stored and maintained at Brigade Headquarters, ready to be dispatched to emergencies at a moment's notice. The photograph offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, providing a unique insight into the London Fire Brigade's history and the vital role that hose-laying lorries played in the firefighting operations of the 1960s. This iconic image is a reminder of the bravery, dedication, and innovation that have defined the London Fire Brigade for generations.
