Good Intent Ladder Company ~ circa 1900
About this creation
At the turn of the last century, Ticlaw Mills boasted many volunteer fire companies. There were five hose companies, five engine companies and three ladder companies. One of the ladder companies was Good Intent. Organized by a group of minifigs in Ticlaw's growing North side in 1896, the company quickly grew to be one of the most active and busiest ladder companies in Ticlaw.





Good Intents first piece of apparatus was a hand pulled ladder wagon that carried two ladders, pike poles and leather fire buckets. This method of transporting their equipment proved tiresome very quickly, and soon the company had raised enough fund to purchase a large horse drawn ladder wagon in 1899. In the mid 20's many of Ticlaw's fire stations were making the transition from horse drawn apparatus to the gasoline engine. Good Intent replaced their horse drawn ladder wagon in 1926 with a Ahrens Fox City service ladder truck. The company used that truck until the station closed its doors in 1942.

The minifigs of Good Intent constructed their fire house in 1897. The ornate two story single bay station featured a beautiful bell tower. This station served the minifigs of Good Intent during the companies forty-five year of service to the City of Ticlaw. After the company closed, the building was purchased by the city and used for maintenance garage until the 1970's when it was town down.

My true intention was to begin work on a steamer, but that changed quickly... Here are some nicer colored pictures of the ladder wagon. I'd certainly welcome some input....
