2017 Millville Fire Apparatus Show and Muster photos

More than 80 vintage fire trucks rolled into WheatonArts this weekend for the 37th annual Fire Apparatus Show and Muster in Millville, New Jersey.

The grand display was a visual history of the evolution of fire and emergency apparatus.

There were hand pumpers and horse drawn apparatus, plus engines from historic manufacturers such as Ward LaFrance, Mack, International Hahn, Ford (Model T), GMC, Seagrave, Pierce and International Oren.

And amazing details like wooden ladders and wheel spokes, retro bullet-shaped lights, brass fittings, and hand cranks for both sirens and windows.

The event is put on each year by WheatonArts and the Glasstown Antique Fire Brigade.
