    Default Hand Drawn Hose Carts

    Does anyone have any good photos of antique hand drawn hose carts?
    Our Department has one that they have lent to the visitor's center, and a side-view photo is impossible to get.
    Our Ladies Auxiliary is looking for a hose cart photo to develope their patch design. I have searched fire museum's web pages, but am unable to get a good side view of any. Any assistance from anyone will be appreciated.

    Not realy antique, but still hand drawn...

    This is a great place, and I wish I could have spent more time there when I visited Phoenix.

    I do not have a good pic of our hose cart at the moment, but this is something, always as the saying goes better then nothing.

    What a co-inky-dink...

    I just purchase supplies to build a hand pumper and hose cart. But I plan to make it all in one. Our community had three carts; two pumpers and one pump w/ hose reel on it. I have a picture of the combo, and I'm going to attempt to build it. I do have original nozzles and hose; and the pistons for pump. Just no chassis.

    Hope the picture helps for what I seen in yours...
