Scale approx 1/20th.
The 19th century manual and steam fire engines did not carry a large supply of water, so the chemical engine was introduced.
This actual model dates from 1888 and the copper cylinder held 40 gallons of water in which sodium bicarbonate was dissolved to which was added sulphuric acid.
