Book Description

Of all the companies that built fire apparatus in the 20th century, none has acquired the cult-like devotion accorded the products of the Ahrens-Fox Fire Engine Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. With its front-mounted piston surmounted by a gleaming spherical air chamber, the Ahrens-Fox piston pumper projects irresistible aesthetic and mechanical appeal. Fire apparatus aficionados have all elevated the classic Ahrens-Fox piston pumper to a firefighting deity. Here are the best—including 30 in glorious color.

Format: Paperback
Excellent "primer" book of Ahrens-Fox photos. Mr. Sytsma would be proud of Mr. McCalls work. The photos are strikingly clear; some have not been seen in some time!!

When a great author writes about great fire trucks the result is a great book. Filled with 120+ photos with well written captions this book is a great source of information about the legendary Foxes.

The book is well illustrated and the text very informative. I missed out on at least one earlier box about Ahrens Fox, so this was a must have. The price was right, too.
