Description

3.5" x 5.5" advertising sheet put out by the Gleason & Bailey Mfg. Company of New York City. The company was founded in 1840 and I believe this ad dates to the at least 1870s. Nice cut of old hand or horse drawn hose reel and pumper. Touts the advantages to having a local fire department and how it saves on fire insurance rates. This is not a magazine or newspaper ad but rather a very small handbill that would be distributed by the company. There is a hole at the top left which is where a string held a pad of these together. Back side is blank.
