Firefighting enthusiasts will enjoy browsing this fascinating collection of photographs depicting the enormous variety of volunteer fire trucks built in 20th Century America. Small-town and rural fire departments long relied on fire apparatus built on commercial truck chassis such as Ford Chevrolet, Dodge, and International. The chassis would be sent to a builder suds as Boardman, Pierce, or Seagrave, which would outfit them with pumps, hosebeds, ladder racks, and the like. Some departments did the outfitting themselves, relying on a local bodyshop or welder to do the bodywork. Detailed captions identify and detail the truck in each photo.
