Historical information

Photograph shows Tommy standing outside a very new brick engine house. This would date the photograph as being 1916 or later. As the brigade received it first motorised appliance in 1917 and second appliance in 1918 the brigade would not have kept horses after this date.


Shows the original facade of the current station with the pillar and wooden doors intact (now removed)
