The more I look at this the more I wonder about the female figure. Is she just a firehouse "groupie" or a real fire person. If the later, why would she not have the same uniform and wear the protective helmet? Or, maybe she's the mother of one of the three firemen. If so, how can she tell them apart? Its a puzzlement, it is.

Cute shot, plus this time of year we can use all the firefighters we can find.

Obviously she's the chief fire officer.

Did I tell you all before that my late nonagenarian grandfather-in-law, featured in my dubious graveyard shot, was chief fire officer of Darlington N.England, and was partly deafened in the 1940s Manchester blitz? He once had his daughter (my mother-in-law & neighbour) leap off the hose-drying tower to give his men practice in catching persons leaping from windows.

I figured your photo had to be something Lego's eventually. Nicely done.

Alan - I'm glad I wasn't in your in-law's family. You wouldn't have seen me jumping off a building for him. :shock:

Good job but now I want to see the rest of the Lego firestation. I keep telling my wife that I never had any Lego blocks as a kid and now (age 63) I want some! Am I crazy or have I just failed to grow up?
