    Title reads: "Lambeth".

    London.

    Fire fighting - ancient and modern. London Fire Brigade entertains 200 provincial fire chiefs with display of old fashioned and modern fire fighting. Various shots of firemen in period uniforms fighting staged fire. They use horse drawn fire carriages with pumps and hoses powered by steam and hand. The crowd of chiefs and other dignitaries watch and applaud from platforms. Various shots of modern fire engines and high pressure hoses being used to fight the fire - in contrast to old method, this way seems much more efficient!
