Another fire truck, this one very nicely disguised for a parade.

Ahrens-Fox it is, this fine specimen is around a 1914 model in Salt Lake City, all gussied up for the big day (which big day I have no clue). A-F fire apparatus were 1st built in Cincinatti, Ohio in 1911, and in 1913 introduced a gasoline powered front mounted pump. In 1915 their famous pump with the spherical air chamber debuted, and these front mounted pumps would be a unique feature of Ahrens-Fox fire trucks until 1952. The last factory built A-F rolled out in 1957, although a few were built by a former employee through the '60's. Don MacKenzie had this 1st. This b&w photo is from the Utah State Historical Society; the color photos are a 1920 model.

Here is some more info on the early models from Bill White.

Ahrens-Fox  Continental model A / model B
(1912 - 1915)
 Taken the same familiar name as the company's famed steam fire engines the Ahrens-Fox Continental piston pumper was powered by a six-cylinder Herschell-Spillman T-head gasoline engine coupled to a 750 gpm piston pump, driven off the front end of crankshaft. Two standard models were offered - the Continental Model "A" and Continental Model "B" with the rear body for the crew. Built on a 148-inch wheel-chassis both models were available with or without chemical equipment. Totally 47 Continental model were built till early 1915. Of these just 3 were "B" models.

Wasn't this Ahrens-Fox's "Bighorn" model?
