A Fireman in the Making: Manhattan 1904

A Fireman in the Making: Manhattan 1904


by Rob Palmer

"I felt like I was there with Mickey Farley, going to hot smoky fires and riding on a horse drawn fire apparatus. There, in the era of iron men and wooden ladders. There, with officers and firemen in their firehouses, at their fires, in their lives. I loved this book and highly recommend it."
‒Paul Hashagen, firefighter F.D.N.Y. Rescue 1 (retired), author, historian
