Meet the team

1929 The "Growlers" at Central Fire Station, Ingram Street. James Melvin bottom right. In the 1920s/30s there were 3 squads in the station, which housed 3 appliances and a Turntable Ladder. Each squad had its own name and own cap badge. The Growlers had a bulldog on their cap, the Greybacks a stag, and the Canaries had a bird. The officers were called Snowdrops for some reason!
