TUCKER Photograph 7.3/4 by 5 (photo). Randsburg, CA 1897, Gold Mining Town. Extinguishing the great fires of that year. VERY INTERESTING RARE Piece. Photo is in great spirit, the mounting cardboard card is damaged but it has the seal stamp from C. W Tucker Photography Company. New Information about the photo. The Photo shows 18 members of the the Randsburg Volunteer Fire Department posed holding the hose line from their horse-drawn Chemical Fire Engine, which was equipped with duel soda-acid chemical tanks. This was a very expensive piece of fire apparatus of the time. The town had little water available so thus the reason for such a large size chemical engine being used. The photograph was most likely taken on Butte Ave which was the main street in the town. For sharing the information. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Photographic Images\Photographs”. The seller is “alden16″ and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
