About Annie Mary Simmons

Annie Mary Simmons and her husband Thomas married September 27, 1885, when she was 18. They lived at the Fire Station in Farringdon Road in Clerkenwell, Central London and at least one of their children was born there. Thomas served in the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB), which later became the London Fire Brigade, from 1882 until 1910.

Firefighters no longer live at the station: "Three floors of the historic Clerkenwell fire station, the oldest working station in Europe have been lying empty for over fifty years. The space was once well-kept family accommodation for the stations’ firefighters. Now yellowing clown-covered wallpaper peels on the walls of what was once a child’s bedroom and plastic crates litter the floor of an old firefighter’s living room" says an article in 'Islington Now.'

"Local pigeons have made their home in the cracked porcelain sinks of the old laundry and industrial Victorian uniform dryer rusts in obscurity." According to the station's manager, "The top three [floors] are unoccupied now. They used to be for the fire fighters and their families. They would have lived here and worked here. They were working 100 hour shifts in those days."
