|Summary, etc.:|| Tragedy, comedy, and an abundance of everyday living are vital parts of this history of the Anderson Fire Department and the City of Anderson. This publication, starting in 1851, tells the story about devastating fires in Anderson's early history and the need for fire protection. Included are the development of the city's water works, the volunteers that pulled a pumping cart across town by hand at the gong of the court house bell and the innovations of machinery, communications and equipment used by firefighters. The book culminates with the Anderson High School fire. Experience the development of schools, churches, factories, service clubs, and politics as the city of Anderson grew through two world wars, the depression through to the new century.
