  • Short Summary

    Bexley Council try out an old fire pump from 1774 and find it still works. Welling, Kent.

  • Description

    Item title reads - Born 1774 - still going strong! Before being relegated to museum, Bexley Council try out their old fire manual and find it (almost!) as good as new. Welling, Kent.

    M/S as the firemen stand on either side of the old engine and pump it up and down, water spurts out of the hose at the top. Various shots as water spurts out of the hose. M/S of the different fire engines.

    Note: an orange tinted version exists.
