Items to recreate a watch desk (12-19-15)

Our fire district has a 1904 Nott steam fire engine which is operational, and is kept on public display. We want to recreate a watch desk from the period, including the various paraphernalia to go with the desk. I have the punch register and take up reel, and the card file, and an alarm box. Right now we need a daily log book from a steam fire engine company of the period from 1904 – 1925 or so, to display on the desk. Another wish (which I know will be hard to fulfill) is a Gamewell or similar wood case gong. This can be in any condition; I can repair nearly anything, but we are seeking this as a donation since we can’t spend taxpayer funding on these things. Also could use a “tapper” bell for the desk. If anyone is willing to help, if you will contact me I will provide contact information for the battalion chief in charge of this equipment. I believe any donation would be tax deductible. We would appreciate any help in recreating the atmosphere of a firehouse in the steam era.

Thank you!
