Every fire station in Willesden has a photograph of this painting by Reginald Mills. Former Willesden fire-fighter Ernie Monk made a painting of the photograph, which is now held by Brent Museum. The original painting by Mills is in the collection of The Fire Service College. He also painted another version about three years after the first, which is held by the London Fire Brigade Museum.
