Firemen



Today's picture shows three firemen with safety equipment and a firehose. It looks like part of the firehose carries a separate line to give the men fresh air. The picture was taken in 1911 in New York.

  2. I know this is a posed picture, but I hope they had FR pants and boots to go with those air masks. Pretty clever idea, by the way.

  3. Predecessor to the oxygen masks used by aviators. Very interesting photo.
