Description

This fire truck was manufactured by John C. Turner Company. It was modeled after the Ahrens Fox fire truck and was manufactured from heavy sheet steel which was the same type of material used for automobiles. The fire truck features removable wooden ladders, a rope fire hydrant, a turning spool for the hydrant, and a metal bell. The materials that were used to manufacture this toy were very uncommon at the time.
