The NYC Fire Department (FDNY) has released a 148-year-old video which shows quite unique views of the financial center of the US, New York. The film from 1927 displays a call coming into the a Manhattan fire station and some fireman battling of the flames.
The driving through the crowded streets of Manhattan takes the viewers into a journey in black and white in the past of the city. On his way to the fire place, John Kenlon, the chief of FDNY at that time, places a camera and films all manner of roadsters, horse-drawn wagons, trolleys, buses, automobiles, and other assorted conveyances. The film reveals, through the viewpoint of a truck, the hectic way of life in NY, which has become the first mega-city ever in human history with over 10 million population in 1930’s.
In the silent film taken out from the archives of FDNY, it can be seen the unusual driving in the streets of New York City. The traffic jams appear to force the drivers use the sidewalks and this is reflected in the footages as commotion. The dazzling journey of the chief Kenlon concludes in the warehouse which is in flames. Then, the firemen extinguishes the fire.
The FDNY is the second largest fire department after Tokyo Fire Department. Although it was established in 1865, it has roots back to 1648. Today, 14 thousand firemen and health team are employed withing FDNY.
