This is a rather remarkable find. Workers at the Dudley site recently entered the fire station for the first time in decades, discovering an amazing time capsule.
The fire house is beneath a manufacturing facility owned by The Alan Nuttall Partnership, which makes interiors and displays for stores.
“It was notionally known about, but nobody had opened it up to take a look,” Anna Bamford, Nuttalls’ marketing manager states.
After locating the key, staff opened the mysterious basement door and were stunned to find a fully-equipped fire station complete with dust-covered pump, hoses, and firefighters’ uniforms hanging on the wall.
Silver buttoned uniforms hung on the wall along with their original hats.
A half drank bottle of Pepsi and award certificates were also found lying around, along with an old gas mask.
The pump is said to be from the 1930’s and has both great monetary value as well as sedimentary value to the city.
I couldn’t imagine owning that building and not being curious enough to open the basement door. Such a cool find!
