Back Wellington Street, Fire Engine (Morley) (2 comments)
Black & White imagec1921. In 1921 Morley Corporation which had taken charge of Morley Fire Brigade early in the century decided to invest in two new fire engines to replace the machines that had been so hard worked during the First World War. The most expensive of the two was the Leyland machine shown here outside the Fire Station in Back Wellington Street behind Morley Town Hall. It cost about £1600 and with its powerful engine could attain a good speed; the driver, Willie Whiteley, earned a reputation for this. However, the solid tyres made it rough going.

Back Wellington Street, Fire Engine (Morley)
Black & White imagec1921. One of two new fire engines bought in 1921 by the Morley Corporation Fire Brigade was this Dennis fire engine, photographed outside the fire station, behind the Town Hall, from Albion Street. The machine was not as powerful as the other new machine, the Leyland, for pumping water but was equipped with an effective escape ladder, found to be very necessary for rescuing mill workers from the third and fourth storeys of blazing buildings. Several of the Morley Town Councillors are seated on the back of this engine and the gentleman at the steering wheel in fire servive uniform is the Mayor Of Morley, Ald. H. H. Watson. who occupied that position from November 1919 to November 1922. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
