Thanks, Mr. Vaill!
THE progressive, up-and-going city of Winsted, A Conn., believes in getting dependable guidance when buying fire apparatus. As good evidence of it, read this interesting letter just received from Theodore Vaill, local newspaper publisher and member of the volunteer fire department :
- “The City of Winsted has instructed its fire department committee to purchase a Pirsch hook and ladder truck, similar to the one recently purchased in Thompsonville, Conn. It is the junior aerial type.
- For your information it can be truthfully said that the sale of this Pirsch to Winsted was due to the advertising of that company in FIRE ENGINEERING. There are five fire companies in Winsted and the one to which I belong, Union Hose No. 1, subscribes to your magazine. We members who read the magazine regularly became interested through Pirsch’s ads and asked the other members of the department to investigate the Pirsch. The result was the purchase.”
- The citizens of Winsted have good reason to feel highly satisfied with the purchase; Peter Pirsch & Sons Co. were naturally happy to make the sale; and we, of course, are mighty glad that the advertising pages of FIRE ENGINEERING served the important role of bringing buyer and seller together to their mutual advantage.
P.S. We appreciate Mr. Vaill’s letter all the more because it came to us wholly unsolicited.
