The New Gilson Nozzle

Issue 24 and Volume 74.

The New Gilson Nozzle Fire Chiefs showed unusual interest at the Richmond Convention in the new Gilson bent pipe with back pressure hook, a nozzle that makes it possible to reach with ease and effectiveness the hard-to-get-at fires. The hook feature makes the nozzle adaptable to numerous fire-fighting uses, a few of which are illustrated on this page. The nozzle, manufactured by the National Pipe Bending Co., New Haven, Conn., is the invention of a practical fireman, John Gilson, who for ten years was a member of the Newark, N. J., fire department.
