1932 Seagrave City Service ladder truck

This 1932 Seagrave City Service ladder truck has served the City of Emeryville in California since its delivery there; Emeryville is directly across the Bay from San Francisco. The truck is built on a long wheelbase designed to carry a wide selection of wooden ladders but no aerial device. It has a small water tank and reel plus monitor but no major pump. It has the standard 6 cylinder Seagrave gas engine with twin ignition. It's primary purpose was Rescue of persons and laddering of buildings. The rig is now used for parades, musters, etc. and sits on the apparatus floor of Emeryville's main fire station. It is typical of many other preserved and restored Classics or Oldtimers to be found in California. Several larger cities around the state have fire museums, and there is a very sctive group of fire truck enthusiasts in two chapters of what is called SPAAMFAA--Society For the Preservation And Appreciation of Antique Motorized Fire Apparatus of America; other chapters are to be found throughout the US and Canada.
