Limerick - The Wissahickon Fire Co. of Ambler proudly showed their 1896 American Fire Engine Co. steamer in the PA State Parade on Sept 25th. A two horse hitch provided young and old a glimpse of the past as this 650 gpm pumper was paraded through the township. After the parade was over, this 'crowd pleasing' unit was on display in a park where they received a second place trophy.
