1888 Echelle "Rosalie" Gugumus Firetruck

picture courtesy of

This is one of my son's oldest firetruck design made by Del Prado and was a gift from his uncle Rollie. It doesn't have an engine and is horse driven. The wheels turn but I was hoping the ladder moves up and down but its too fragile and might break.

This is very nice and a great addition to Ken's growing firetruck collection.

thanks daniel! yes he treasures these kinds of firetrucks, he seldom plays with them, but his tomica and matchbox firetruck collection is well played. :-)
