EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the essence of firefighting in the 1960s, as seen at the new Clapham fire station in Old Town, SW4. The appliance bay is filled with the London Fire Brigade's state-of-the-art vehicles of the time, each with a distinct role in firefighting operations. In the foreground, we see a fire engine with its red ladder extended, ready for action. To its left, a breakdown lorry stands at the ready, equipped to repair and maintain the Brigade's fleet of vehicles. The pump-escape, a crucial feature of fire stations, is visible in the background, leading to the watchroom. The watchroom, where firefighters gather to receive calls and strategize, is located next to the appliance bay. With its windows open, it offers a glimpse into the inner workings of the fire station. The brick walls and industrial lighting add to the sense of tradition and purpose. This photograph, taken in 1963, offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, showcasing the equipment and vehicles that were once the backbone of the London Fire Brigade's operations. The image transports us back to a time when firefighters relied on their skill, determination, and the tools at their disposal to keep the city safe. The Clapham fire station, with its red-brick facade and functional design, is a testament to the importance of firefighting services in the community. This photograph is a reminder of the vital role that firefighters play in protecting lives and property, and the essential equipment and infrastructure that makes their work possible.
