The History of Fire Extinguishers as we know it – follow up

Regular readers of our Blog pages may remember a post entitled “The History of the Fire Extinguisher as we know it” back in April of 2009.

The piece received quite alot of attention and drew comments from readers regarding old and obsolete fire extinguishers amongst other things.  Recent comments and responses made reference to the restoration of an old Minimax Frowave fire extinguisher possibly dating back to the 1930’s. The gentleman responsible for restoring the extinguisher has provided us with some fascinating before and after photos which can be seen below.

    Thanks for the comment Jack. As well as many other ‘projects’ on the go I’m going to restore a 1939 extinuisher in the near future & if anybody is interested I’ll keep a photo record of the process. But not sure how I will be able to show it. The reproduction of the lable is the most complicated but a good lable has to be just right to ‘finish’ the job.
