9707-F07. Circle City, Alaska, Bucket Brigade fire department. A man in a buckskin coat stands outside the Circle City fire department building, with a pole in his hand which is used to ring the fire alarm bell. A sign next to him says “Ring Like H--l In Case Of Fire” On the top of the building is a sign “Phoenix” with a fireman’s axe and ladder emblem. On the street in front of the building is the fire wagon, a hand-drawn cart with 21 buckets, each approximately 5 gallon. The cart has 4 small diameter wooden wheels and is designed to move the water-filled buckets to the fire scene. The next door building has advertising affixed “Hote’s National Adv Service From Bangor Me. to Circle City”. Next door is apparently a saloon with the sign “Free Lodging”.
