Fire Brigades in 1973
15th July 2022
In 1973 there were approximately 150 Fire Brigades protecting the United Kingdom – all with their own ideas on how to design and specify fire engines. However, local government reorganisation the following year was about to change that.
This book is a unique photographic record by distinguished fire engine photographers John Toomey, who came especially from New York, and Andrew Henry. It documents the amazing diversity of British post-war fire engines. Captions and an expert commentary are provided by the highly respected Fire Brigade author and historian Ron Henderson.
