Antique Fire Wagons

Antique post cards showing fire departments, fire trucks, and fire wagon postcards are available at Reuzeit Emporium. The early fire wagons were water pumps on wheels.  They were an added help for the bucket brigade. At first, these pumps on wheels were pulled by people and the pumps were either pumped by hand or powered by steam. Soon horses were hitched to the wagons but there was no room for the firefighters who had to run along behind. Often the building burned to the ground or the fire died out before the firefighters could start fighting the fire.
