Horse Drawn Fire Engine

Today's picture shows an exciting scene with a horse-drawn fire engine racing to a fire. The picture was taken around 1900.


  1. Wonderful photo!

    Reminds me of Ben Hur!

  2. What a great action shot. They look like they are really moving. I love how the horses are all galloping in synch with 3 hooves in the air.

  3. That looks almost as dangerous as the fire :)

  4. Did a google search and found this photo at the Library of Congress in glorious 1526x1224 pixel size.

    It's great to see all the people on upper floors hanging out, watching them gallop by.
