672. Cowboy line rider tool, it was kept on the saddle horn and along with the hammer, it has a pick and wire twisting tool for fence mending. It reads "Atomic, Glaskin Mfg, Pat Pending".

673. Fire truck control panel. Though commonly known as a fire truck, this vehicle is actually a quint, the names refers to the five functions it provides: pump, water tank, fire hose, aerial device, and ground ladders.

I was driving past the fire station last week, and pulled over for a few shots when I saw a fireman testing out the ladder on this great looking truck.

Probably either a 60 or 75 foot ladder.

This is the panel on the other side.

674. Meat tenderizer

675. Home made mouse trap, said to be "surprisingly sensitive".

676. Reliable egg scale

677. Cork squeezer
