About the book:

This book does an excellent job in covering the history and current whereabouts of the fire engines produced by the William C. Hunneman Company. With a brief introduction, the reader gets a feeling for the era, followed by a detailed explanation of the company's beginnings and fine accomplishments. A large portion of the book describes the author's "safari" across Northern America in an outstanding effort to trace and photograph these engines, locating 165 of the 745 produced. Accompanied by old documents, advertisements, newspaper articles, and clear, full page photographs, the book covers every detail of the famous fire engines. The last quarter of the book contains the original shipping list from their first fire engine built in 1792, to their last built in 1881.
