04/18/12 302 W, 1 I - + 6 - 5 American LaFrance Bid Document, 1925

For our third and final vintage bid document, this one's dated January (?) 30, 1925. One Type #75 triple pumper chemical engine and hose motor car for the Raleigh Fire Department. To be built and shipped in about 60 working days after receiving and executing contract. Price $12,500, subject to delivery, test, acceptance, and regular periodic inspection.

The serial number was #5097. The manufacturing date was April 14, 1925. It was one of four Type 75 pumpers delivered in 1922, 1925, and 1926 (two). Like the prior posting about Station 4 and the Gamewell alarm system, this is a scan of a photocopy, obtained years ago from the City Clerk's office. Read this document.
