WANTED:

Albany, NY Steam Engines (1-16-15)

I’m trying to track down the original steam engines used by our fire department – Albany, NY. They were from 1865 and the three were nicknamed The James McQuade, the Putnam, and the Thomas Kearney. Here is some info and picture on The James McQuade. I’m looking for a steam pumper from 1864-65 manufactured by banks and company from Tribes Hill, NY. It was delivered to Albany in 1865 and, as best I can figure out, it was still in Albany as of 1980; though I can’t find it locally any more. Thank you. Tim Blaney Email
