Description

The Androscoggin No. 2 Hand Engine used this green fire bucket in conjunction with the Topsham Fire Department.

The Androscoggin No. 2 was delivered from Hunneman & Co. March 17, 1850 and remained active in fire protection until 1919. Afterward, the Androscoggin Veteran Firemen's Association continued to use it at musters. The bucket is now on display at the Topsham Fire Department.
