Ready for the bell! These 15 members of the Pilkington fire brigade were pictured in 1950.

They were snapped in front of their Fordson engine DJ8200 at the Cowley Hill station.

Photograph owner Marjorie Shufflebottom’s father, Harry Hunter, can be seen one from the left on the front row.

We’d love to hear from anyone who might be able to put names to a few more faces.
