Storyline

About 20 residents of Pawtucket, R.I., line one side of a street in view of a stationary camera. Down the street toward us, at a fast clip, come the horse-drawn engines and conveyances of the town's fire department. There are transport wagons full of uniformed firefighters, a hook and ladder truck with an aft driver, and a one-horse carriage with the chief. After eight pieces of equipment go by, regular traffic resumes; several buggies follow the fire brigade as the crowd disperses. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pawtucket Fire Department (1903)

The Biograph company took their cameras to Pawtucket where they filmed this one minute movie, which shows the fire department racing down the street. The camera is set up pretty far away but it captures several horse-drawn carriages as they rush to a fire (or getting a cat down from a tree). There's certainly nothing ground-breaking about this film but it's slightly entertaining just due to how fast the horses are racing through the streets and by the fact that the people on the street don't seem to take notice or be bothered by them.

Again, nothing ground-breaking but it's cool to see the footage.
