Fire service history … Peter Pirsch & Sons

This from Mike Summa for #TBT:

For TBT- Pirsch fire trucks were a big part of the American fire service.  Many city and suburban fire departments utilized this type of apparatus.  Many years ago I mailed a letter to Pirsch asking for literature.  These are a sample of what was sent.
