Product Description

American building grew taller, many people perished in fires because of inadequate ladders. It became obvious that taller ladders were needed. Soon, the hook & ladder with tall mechanically powered ladders was developed. Its primary purpose was more a matter of rescue than extinguishing the fire.

Although this 1890 wagon was a transitional design with two rings on the rope handle to engage a hitch for a horse, it was hand pulled. The horse came after the fire house had enough money to buy one.
