Los Angeles City ยท Ladders

1915 Ford Model T

Since this beautiful ladder truck had been in service with the Los Angeles Fire Department, not the County, the Museum donated it to them in 2010. The LAFD promptly scrapped it. The Museum therefore dedicates this page to the memory of the 1923 Stutz Ladder Truck.1915 Ford Model T

City service ladder trucks were designed to carry numerous ground ladders, but they were not equipped with an aerial ladder. Once a proud member of the LA City Fire Department, this straight frame city service ladder truck was unique in that the rear drive wheels also could be steered by a tillerman. When this antique was delivered to our museum, it had no front axle or wheels. It is now on four wheels (with newly refurbished wood-spoke front wheels) but full restoration is not scheduled in the near future.
