About this title


Long before there were aerial ladder trucks, there were city service hook and ladder trucks. For many years, long-wheelbase, straight-frame city service hook and ladder trucks were standard offerings in the product catalogs of most fire apparatus manufacturers. The last straight service ladder trucks were built in the mid-1950s.The pump-equipped quad rolled on into the 1960s, before it too was eclipsed by the quintuple combination, or “quint.” This book is a photographic tribute to these fondly-remembered hook and ladder trucks and quads built during the golden age of American motor fire apparatus.

About the Author:

Walter M. P. McCall is one of the most widely known and respected fire apparatus historians and authors in North America. In addition to his highly regarded American Fire Engines Since 1900 – still considered the “bible” of the old fire engine hobby -- Walt McCall has authored ten Iconografix fire apparatus and professional car books including the landmark Encyclopedia Of American Fire Engine Builders. Walt served as Editor of Enjine! Enjine!, the quarterly magazine of the Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus in America (SPAAMFAA) for 25 years and edited The Visiting Fireman, the annual international directory of fire buffs for nine years. McCall has also written numerous articles for fire service and antique vehicle publications and newsletters in the United States and Canada.
