New York City Firemen
This photograph was taken in 1913, and shows the New York City Fire Department with one of its first motorized firetrucks. If you look over to the right, you can see one of the earlier horse drawn ones used by the city. I always wanted to be a fireman, but that is one thing I have never done. The little community that I live in has about 400 people, and does not have a normal fire department, but has a volunteer department. If there is a fire, the whistle blows, and the firemen drive down to the station. I have always thought about being a volunteer fireman, but have just never done it.
