Winter picture of Fire Truck pumper.
In the winter the tires would be removed from the 1919 American LaFrance Pumpers and sled runners attached and then pulled by horses to the fire hydrants. The snow was too deep to use wheeled vehicles until the mid 1930s when snow removal equipment for the roads started to be used. Until that time the snow in the roads was "panked" with 6' diameter horse drawn rollers and horse drawn sleds were used exclusively on the roads.
