Fire_ChemicalEngine-200_small.jpg fire engine post card available from LotsOfCards.com"CHEMICAL ENGINE No 2 / BELLAIRE FIRE DEP'T. / 182345  Bellaire, Ohio" with 2 horses pulling specialized equipment manufactured by Merryweather & Sons 1902 - 1914. The top fitting behind the drivers carried a lead bottle of sulfuric acid (punctured by turning a handle at the rear), which reacted with a water/bicarbonate solution in the lower rear copper cylinder causing carbon dioxide gas to expel the liquid at high pressure. For communities that could afford such specialization, fire fighters could provide near-instant response on arrival at a fire scene, whilst other engines were delayed getting their connections to a hydrant.  There is a long horizontal crease which will not occupy your attention for long; the corners are rounded; message was dated January 22 1910. We are told the man holding the reins is Jacob Roy McMillen. Another example of this postcard is in the book 'Images of America / Bellaire' by Holly Bruno and Andrew Ehritz. Another is in a museum. Under high magnification a curved BELLAIRE OHIO is over the right front wagon wheel. Definitely an uncommon postcard. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 fho(b)
