Random historical image, found during some file cleaning. It's a New Bern Atlantic Fire Company hose wagon participating in a race circa 1900. That year, the state fireman's convention was held in Wilmington. Read newspaper coverage of the 1900 tournament, and other conventions from that decade. Click to enlarge:
