Firefighting

Firefighting equipment of all types is wanted, from fire marks to uniforms to toy fire trucks. Leather fire buckets with the name of the firehouse, the city, or the city's insignia painted or stamped on them were used by firefighters in America from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It is said that every little boy wanted to be a fireman or a train engineer 75 years ago and the collectors today reflect this interest.
