Description
This color postcard shows a 1907 Pumper Wagon that was situated in front of the Blind River Fire Department.

These older vehicles were coal fired and a fireman would feed coal to the engine. This would be done on the way to the fire site in order to build up the pressure so it would be ready to use when they arrived at the fire.
