LFB 150th anniversary photo exhibition

I went to City Hall to see the London Fire Brigades 150th anniversary photo exhibition!

Whilst researching how the UK Fire Brigade has changed for women employees over the years, I stumbled upon the London Fire Brigades 150th anniversary photo exhibition. So I took a trip down to City Hall to see how the Brigade has changed for not only women, but a unit as a whole.

2016 marks the 150th anniversary of the London Fire Brigade and to celebrate, City Hall are exhibiting 28 images taken by Brigade photographers. On display are rare stills from the Brigade’s archives, revealing how ‘equipment, stations, firefighting methods and the work force’ has changed and developed since it first began in the Victorian era.

Before attending, I ensured I got permission to photograph the exhibition.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the exhibition.

The free photo exhibition runs from Monday 7th November until Friday 23rd of December.
