Caption: Merryweather steam fire engine, 19th-century artwork. This is one of the steam fire engines produced by the British company Merryweather and Sons, founded by Moses Merryweather (1791–1872) of Clapham, London, later joined by his son Richard Moses (1839–1877). They produced their first steam fire engines in the early 1860s. The pressure to pump water through hoses was produced by a steam engine. This wood engraving dates from circa 1888.
