Old Fire Wagon

This photo was taken around 1914 in front of the old city hall and fire department on West Fifth Street. The Minonk Fire Department consisted then of one horse drawn hose and ladder wagon and one hand drawn two wheeled hose cart. At the time the streets were not paved and it was very difficult to pull the wagons through the streets.
