Hand Pumped ยท Hand Pulled

1916 American LeFrance

 

An example of fire apparatus that was used prior to the advent of horse-drawn steamers, this beautifully restored hand-drawn pumper required several powerful men to pull it to the scene of the fire, and then needed 24 or more people to operate the seesaw-type pump levers. The continuous pump action is strenuous and a long-term operation would require relays of people to provide relief and keep the water streams steady.
