San Francisco Fire Department Museum

I took a visit to a museum that I wanted to see for a long time-the San Francisco Fire Museum. It tells the story of the San Francisco Fire Department:

Engine 26-1897
Engine 22-1893
1914 American LaFrance Fire Engine
The next two are of Engine #2. It was built in 1810 and served New York City for 30 years and was shipped to San Francisco around Cape Horn in 1849:

High Pressure Battery No.3-1909
Late 19th Century Fire Helmet
Bust of David S. Scannell, the last Chief Engineer of the San Francisco Volunteer Fire Department

Volunteer Engine No.7-1850's

The Fire Helmet of Lillian Coit (She donated the money for Coit Tower), Ms. Coit was the patroness of the early San Francisco Fire Department
The San Francisco Fire Museum is a wonderful place to learn the history of the city's Fire Department and more people need to know about it. It is worth a visit.
