Horse Drawn Fire Engines (1896)

- February 8, 2013 in collections, edison, Films, Films: 19th Century, Films: Clip, Films: Documentary, fire engine, horses

It was the target of sabotage by firefighters and its use was discontinued, and motorized fire engines did not become commonplace until the early 20th century.
