  • From verso of card: "When using a portable fire pump, it is necessary to have a large supply of water which can be contained in any convenient receptacle. In the illustration, a small canvas dam is being used and kept full by a chain of persons passing filled buckets from hand to hand, others returning the empty buckets to the source of supply. The illustration shows a small hand pump in use."

    The "canvas dam" is a large two-handled bag.
