02/06/10 131 W, 1 I - + 11 - 6 Nott Fire Equipment Information Wanted

Ed Arata in Sutter Creek, CA, is seeking information about Nott fire apparatus, specifically contacts for people or organizations that may have leads on three pieces of equipment:

Below is a photo of a 1927 fire engine that the town used. They mounted the Nott extinguisher on a 1920 or 1921 Dodge pick-up, and added a homemade hose reel with float cotton hose. The town still has the reel and basket, which survived in the attic at a place called Cap's Garage. Notice the nozzle stored behind the tool box on the running board, which has survived well. Any leads appreciated. Mail me and I'll pass along. Click to enlarge:
