Louis - love it when these wonderful old Steamers, are rigged up with their horse-team and crew, as they would have looked when in service.
Not the same, when they are just a dusty museum exhibit, in a corner.
Love the crew's pickelhaube (spiked) helmets; and of course the Officer has to have a sword... gee, that might give ideas to some of today's Fire Managers (<;}

Great photo, of a great rig in time.

Regards, from Canada,
