Cork Fire Brigade Turning Out 1902

3 mins United Kingdom

Considerable planning clearly went into this film, with events scripted to the extent that a hastily prepared and certainly fictional 'Oil Store' sign is placed above the blaze. Some of the rescued people even appear to be wearing nightgowns in broad daylight. Most significantly, the filmmakers chose to film the action with two cameras in different positions to ensure that not a moment was lost.
