Ep17: The Knight of the Fire

5pm on 18th March 1902 and it was time to go home. It had been a busy Tuesday at the soap works in Broad Plain, Bristol and all the workmen were happy to go home or go to the local pub beforehand.

The premises were left in the safe hands of the night watchman, whose duty it was to periodically make an inspection of the buildings.Also there was the smaller night shift. It was two hours later that he found the fire.
