LCC-MFB, HQ station, Southwark SE1 Featured 1890 Print

LCC-MFB, HQ station, Southwark SE1

The new headquarters of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) opened in 1878 under its Chief Officer Captain Eyre Massey Shaw. With the creation of the London County Council in 1889 it became responsible for the capital's fire service and the MFB changed its name to the London Fire Brigade. Seen here is the HQ engine house with its horse drawn escape cart and two horse drawn steam driven pumps. They were first introduced into the London Fire Engine Establishment (the forerunner of the MFB) in 1860

Located at Frimley Street in the East End of London it closed in 1902 when a replacement Mile End fire station was erected in Mile End Road. The station pictured was built for a horse drawn steamer, hence the 50ft wheeled escape ladder being stored by the side of the station
