As an officer of the Latham Fire Department, AKA (S. W. Pitts Hose Co) I have attached a photo of our first piece of firefighting equipment, which I’m trying to locate. The piece in question is a 1910 Howe combination chemical engine which we purchased new at that time, posed in front of the then station, with many interested residents in attendance.
We believe the 1910 Howe is in a private collection, possibly in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont or in the New England area. Any assistance in locating the whereabouts of this historical piece would be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance for your assistance,
Board of Directors
