Horse drawn steam fire engine
1906
water was pumped onto the fire by a double-acting onboard steam engine. Steam was raised to working pressure from cold in 10 minutes, while travelling to the fire. Coal for the boiler was kept in the bunker below the front axle.
Used privately on the Duke of Beaufort’s estate, at Badminton, near Bristol.
