Wanted: Victor Talking Machine Company Fire Alarm Box

Post by blick068 »

Seeking to purchase a Gamewell manufactured fire alarm box from the Victor Talking Machine Company of New Jersey. I am finding that most of those available are in the hands of Victor Talking Machine Company collectors rather than fire alarm box collectors.
11/22/2021 Very excited to report the acquisition of a brass fire nozzle stamped V.T.M.Co. and used in conjunction with the Gamewell fire alarm system.

Mine is the one shown in the book "History of the Fire Alarm and Police Telegraph" and was restored by Aaron Cramer about 15 years ago as a present to his son-in-law, a retired fireman.
