This is a discussion on Fire Trucks from 1911 within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; I took my son to the Fire Museum today. Thought y'all might enjoy seeing a fire truck from the year 1911. I found it interesting ...
I gotta believe that if JMB had designed them, they'd look like the firetrucks we see today

One thing is for sure. Those trucks were works of art as well as functional.
While today's fire trucks are well advanced, they resemble boxes on wheels.

New trucks may not have the nice looks of these old, restored apparatus, but keeping the tools in enclosed compartments keeps them much cleaner than having everything exposed to the elements at all times.
We get the government we deserve.
Both 1911's are works of art from a design and longevity standpoint!
