Cleveland Dennis B142 RDC at chimney fire 1983

This was my first ever Fire Engine photo also taken in 1983. It is Thornaby's B142RDC attending a chimney fire on Norton Road.

To John Scott, Thanks for the comments, I try to do my best.
To, Bomba Boy, As stated above this was my first ever photo of a fire appliance in service. When I took it, there was (out of picture) a large crowd of people standing close to the HP. The incident was actually a Chimney fire, and there was a fireman on the roof- the crowd being more interested in him, than the appliances! I do have another photo of this incident, which shows the HP and will appear here in due course. The HP is Stockton's DDC1 (The Dennis F125 Delta)however, owing to a confidence thing at the time, I didn't approach DDC1 because of the people. A shame really, because that would have been the best shot I'd ever taken of it, I never got another opportunity to photograph DDC1 again. The second photo of the incident shows a Brigade staff car obstructing the HP, but it is good enough to publish here (eventually!)

Some great old photos on display here mate. Do you have one of a AEC TURNTABLE LADDER, CFT 80ID.
