Description

In this book, Andy Daley takes you on a pictorial journey depicting the history of fire engines on Merseyside. Saviours from the scourge of fire and countless other emergencies, Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service has always operated a diverse and eclectic fleet of fire engines - from Dennis, Ford, Bedford and Leyland vehicles inherited in 1974, through to a brief flirtation with Dodge's in the 1980s, up to the modern era of Dennis Sabres and finally Scania. Only the most innovative and reliable fire engines have been used to protect the hustle and bustle of Liverpool city centre, the vast and sprawling docks with its Victorian -era cotton warehouses and shipping, row upon row of terraced streets, and more. Merseyside's firefighters needed the very best to protect what Carl Jung famously called 'The Pool of Life' - Liverpool and its surrounding urban metropolis.
