Victorian Tin Ladder Fire Truck
A fantastic early Victorian era tin fire truck. It is a hook and ladder truck with 3 ladders. It is a metal body with tin wheels (not cast metal or rubber) and the tin metal driver is still in place of the seat. The metal flywheel that keeps the truck moving once it is pushed is still in place by the rear wheels. The body does have some paint loss and tarnishing. Originally it probably also had tin ladders that did not survive being played with and used. In the past, someone has replaced these with hand made ladders made of wood strips and metal rungs. It is still a very nice early tin toy that has survived in very good condition.
