Sturditoy American Lafrance Water Tower #9 For Sale
Offered for sale is an original unrestored original Sturditoy American La France Water Tower No.9.
This is an early version, circa 1922-1924.
Great patina. The decals are all quite readable.
Transporting this toy from its storage location to my office, it struck me that the little brass bell on the fire truck rings as clearly today as it did 91 years ago.
The original controls were front steering, rear steering, tower and nozzle elevation, nozzle direction (left or right) and are non functional except for front steering and nozzle direction left and right.
Tower elevation can be accomplished by manually lifting the boom.
This toy makes a great static display and commands attention.
This is a very large toy.
It is 33 inches long x 8-1/2 inches wide x 33 inches tall with nozzle boom raised 90 degrees from horizontal.
Thank a first responder, veteran or a military member on this week of our nations declaration of independence.
