    Item title reads: "West Bromwich Civil week inaugurated with fine fire brigade display and exciting motor cycle rodeo"

    West Bromwich, Midlands

    The Fire Brigade put on a display for the crowds by setting a small specially constructed wooden building alight. It blazes gloriously, and two fire tenders rush up and the firemen are seen in action with hoses and jets of water to quench the fire. The mayoress is seen with others - they all get on motor bikes and play 'motor bike football' on a pitch, cheered on by the crowds.

    Note: I think someone scores a goal!
