Models built for the 'The Great Fire of London' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

Concluding the theme of anniversaries in our 40th year, for the September meeting the Challenge will be the Great Fire of London which has its 350th anniversary in 2016.

Built for the The Great Fire of London Secretary's ChallengeFire Tender

Built by Brian Leach

The Internet is very sketchy as to whether these existed during the Great Fire of London. The model is pleasing apart from the wheels not being spoked and the arms not being curved to represent the curved forked wood that would have been used.
