      • Idiots didn’t used to think they needed a 100 foot tower and a 2500 GPM pump on every fire.

        We used to put fires out with coal powered steam pumps, pulled by horses. (which is why dalmatians are fire dogs, they are bred to be tied to a carriage, and bite the shit out of strangers and other dogs that might spook horses).

        Also fits down narrow allies. I suspect it was used to bring manpower and the narrow ladder.

    3. Given the one adult (sensibly the one driving) and the rest children this might just be a novelty vehicle?? Or an example of the Brit affection for recruiting them young. Or a special crew to fight just chimney and garden shed fires.
