Product Overview

The story of firefighting in Ashtabula is almost as old as the community itself, beginning with the informal citizen bucket brigades of frontier necessity in the early decades of the 1800s. Between 1836 and 1911, the burgeoning Lake Erie port and manufacturing city was served by a cadre of dedicated volunteer fire companies, including the celebrated, award-winning Protection Fire Company. Ashtabulas rapid growth spurred the October 25, 1911, transformation of the citys longstanding volunteer fire corps into a paid, full-time professional fire department. With over 200 archival images drawn from the Ashtabula Fire Department, the private collections of retired city firefighters, and local newspaper and museum archives, Ashtabula Firefighting highlights 170 years of firefighting heritage. *Author: Johnson, Eric Allen *Series Title: Images of America (Arcadia Publishing) *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 127 *Publication Date: 2006/09/06 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.30 x 6.56 x 0.34 inches
