  • Description

    Full title reads: "Rayleigh. 'The Fireman's Wedding'. Fellow members of the Rayleigh Fire Brigade drag his decorated engine as a bridal coach- after wedding of their driver, Fireman Mott."

    Rayleigh, Westcliff, (probably Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex).

    Nice shot of Driver Mott and his bride standing outside the Church. His colleagues in their Firemen's uniforms form a bridal arch with their axes.

    They walk from the Church with an escort of firemen. People throw confetti.

    The couple climb up into the cab of the Rayleigh Urban District Council fire engine. The engine is towed by firemen while one of their number rings the bell. Driver Mott still gets to steer.
