Bedford TKEL/Fire Armour/50' PHP Worcs 164 YFK

1974 Kidderminster, Worcester City and County Brigade, a town famous for carpet factories - sorry about the indifferent quality but this is a very rare appliance in action. Full details at #20793.

this appliance was replaced by Dennis HP RUY 150V that can be seen at picture #27929. The same tower is visible in the background of both pictures, I have just noticed, presumably a carpet factory..

Yes that was originally a carpet factory Peter and was the same height as the tower, but (ironically) a fire took out the upper floors many years ago. Sadly (and typically) it is no longer a carpet factory, just a series of individual commercial units.
