1910 Fire Fighter The history of fire fighting is an exciting chonicle of brave fire fighters, tragic fires and the development of modern fire-fighting equipment.

In the 18th century volunteer firemen pulled smal, light engines to the scene of a fire and hand-pumped them for a steady stream of water. In the 19th century the hand pumper was superseded by the more practical steam engine and the hardy volunteer fireman was replaced by the gallant fire horse. However, it was the introduction of the gasoline-driven engine in the 20th century and the passing of the fire horse that brought to an end the most inspiring and romantic era in the history of fire fighting.

This process of motorization was well-represented by the 1910 gasoline pumper built by the American-LaFrance-Foamite Corporation which our decanter is patterned after. It was the company’s first gasoline-driven motor unit, providing both driving and pumping functions. This model was one of the forerunners of the modern fire-fighting apparatus that would serve the industrialized world.
