An old horse drawn fire pump stands as both a reminder of days long past, and the artistic work which was put in to this practical device when it was built. It was often the only line of defense in the towns where all the buildings were made of wood, and fires presented the highest level of threat to the citizens. Standing in its custom built shed, it stands, as it would have ready for action day and night. Its job now taken over by a sleek modern vehicle, it displays an image from a time when a more down to earth living style was prevalent.
