Title

Adding the Fire Device to an Automobile

Description

A group of men studying the attachment of the Fire device to a car.
Getting a horse to the engine house and then towing an engine to a fire took time so towing it by car seemed a good idea. When it became detached during it's first journey and ended in a ditch the idea didn't seem as good. This picture records that first attempt.
