Sun Fireman, from W. H. Pyne’s “Costume of Gt. Britain” (1808) with a combined treadle and manual engine in the background.
“The Hand in Hand the race begun”
“Then came the Phoenix and the Sun”
Insurance “fire” engines racing to a fire. From an early 19th-century painting.
The days where long trousers didn’t exist
hand knitted jumpers, time to burn
can we recall
that which we yearned
The weeks where school was our home
Sun to play, rain to frolic
