    In 1913, the International Association of Fire Engineers (now the International Association of Fire Chiefs) held their 41st annual conference in New York City. One component of the event was a competition for the newly developed motorized pumper. On September 3 at 6:30 a.m., the 12-hour pump test began with 11 pieces of apparatus competing. A length of hard suction hose was used by each engine to draft water from the Hudson River. Overall performance of the equipment was determined by using a point system. The motor had to remaining running during the complete 12-hour test period. Apparatus from the following companies began the event. Ahrens-Fox American LaFrance - Two units Knox Luietweiler Nott - Two units Robinson - Two units Seagrave Waterous Eight of the engines completed the test. The Luietweiler, one Nott and one Robinson failed. The Ahrens-Fox earned the highest score. In addition to this information, I have added a few notes to some of the other photos in this grouping.
