The model 32 does the same thing.

Model 30 Ferno (pre-merger with Washington) - from what I've read, I'd say approx. '59 to '60 (please correct me if wrong.)

On the above model 30s, the earlier model had the release handles on the left (if facing the head end), while the newer model had the handles on the right. Could it be ordered either way? or was this a production change, made for a reason?

Default Correct Stretcher for an Early 1920's Model T Ambulance

Hi Gang,
I am building a model of my original squad's early 1920's Model T Ford ambulance. Unfortunately, the only image that I have of it is a line drawing from the 75th Anniversary t-shirt. Repeated requests for a photo(s) of the rig have gone unanswered. So, while I am okay taking a little artistic license, I would like to be as correct as possible. So, what would have been found in a volunteer ambulance squad's rig just outside of Philadelphia in the early 1920's? Any suggestion, photos, or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Sincerely,


David

Here's my latest acquisition. A Collapsi-Cot manufactured by Emergency Aids Company, Chicago 13, Illinois. Going by the "Chicago 13" address I'm guessing early 1960's era. Good heavy unit most likely this one is from a plant of some type but could be used in an ambulance. It collapses in and out by folding of the upper head end of cot. It has four caster wheels on bottom with fabric pull straps at foot and head ends. Typically you would refer to this type unit as a stretcher not a cot though.

I was wondering the same thing? My release handle is on the left (while facing the head).
