American-LaFrance Issues Catalogue
A very complete catalogue of the line of fire equipment that they manufacture has been issued by the American-LaFrance Fire Engine Company of Elmira, N. Y. The Book contains 190 pages and, is liberally illustrated. The novel feature of this catalogue is the fact that in addition to illustrating the various appliances, there is a short description telling how the device should be used. This is a very useful innovation in catalogue compilation.
