Fig. 245. Rumsey & Co., Builders, Seneca Falls, N.Y.
Fig. 245 represents our Village Fire Engine. This Engine is constructed in a thoroughly workmanlike manner; it is very strong and durable, and is especially adapted for use in small towns where the streets are poorly paved, and where an engine meets with the roughest kind of service. This Engine has 4 1/2 inch brass cylinders, with seven inch stroke, brass pistons, iron bound wheels with metal hubs, heavy iron axles, and folding brakes with automatic locks. It is fitted for 1 1/2 inch discharge and 2 1/2 inch suction hose; the suction hose is carried squirrel-tail fashion, and need not be removed when water is taken from the box. We paint this Engine any color desired, ornament and letter it artistically, and nickel-plate all brass work. We furnish without extra charge strainer for suction hose, one pair of suction couplings, brass discharge pipe, necessary wrenches, etc. This Engine will throw a 1-2 or 5-8 inch stream about 110 feet.
