Summary
  • This excerpt shows a demonstration by the famous fireboat "New Yorker." The picture shows the fireboat with all its nozzles spurting water as it goes back and forth in front of the camera. Put in service on February 1, 1891 as Engine Company 57, the "New Yorker" was stationed at the Battery near Castle Garden, where her crew lived aboard. She was 125 feet long, 25 feet abeam, with a tonnage of 243. The 800 horsepower triple expansion engine turned a single screw. With a total capacity of 13,000 gallons per minute from its Clapp & Jones and La France fire pumps, the "New Yorker" was the most powerful fireboat in the world. When Admiral Dewey came to New York with the flagship "Olympia" after the battle of Manilla Bay, the "New Yorker" led the water parade of hundreds of craft. Built at a cost of 98,250 dollars, the "New Yorker" remained in service until 1931
  • From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: FIREBOAT "NEW YORKER" IN ACTION. A magnificent picture of this boat making a run and starting the water from at least a dozen nozzles at one time. In the middle of the picture the boat is seen throwing at least twenty streams, so enveloping itself in mist that it is almost entirely obscured
