Tyre shop fire Kingston-upon-Thames 1962

A fire rages in a tyre store at 65 Cambridge Road, Kingston-upon-Thames as spectators stand close watching.

The location is now part of the Cambridge Estate or at least the road names have been retained during the redevelopement during the 1960s.

January 13th 1962.

This was a dramatic set of images and I know how excited my dad would have been to have got home and developed these.
