1921 / 1875 Silsby Steamer & Ford Tractor -
This 1875 Silsby steamer, our second piece of motorized apparatus, was originally owned by Reading PA and sold to the Grier Bros. of Salisbury for resale to Snow Hill FD. A fire in 1899 threatened the city of Salisbury and they used the steamer on that fire and then decided to keep her. We purchased it used from the Salisbury FD in October, 1921. A Ford Tractor was purchased to pull the steamer. This unit was scrapped during WWII. What a loss to the departmental history to support the war effort. Several of these pictures were prior to our ownership.
