The Ahrens Engine

A notice that appeared in FIRE AND WATER on September 2, 1887, says: The steam fire engines made by the Ahrens Manufacturing Company, of Cincinnati, O., are well known throughout the country. This company is the direct successor of the Latta Company, builders of the first steam fire engines used in the United States. A special feature of their construction is embraced in their facility for raising steam quickly, and in the construction of the boilers, tending to accomplish this end.
