FDNY in the 1920's


This ( 5 min. video ) a alarm box was pulled in Brooklyn in the 1920's. The new state-of-art Brooklyn FireTelegraph system was just completed and the movie shows how a pulled fire alarm box was received and re-transmitted to the fire stations. The video also shows apparatus of the time period responding, firemen hooking up to a fire hydrant, pulling hose from apparatus, ladder work and the water tower fighting a building fire.
