From verso of card: "The stirrup hand pump with a short length of hose is a most useful and inexpensive appliance for dealing with fires in their early stages. . . . Its use is recommended to quench any fire which the bomb may have started. The pump is easy to handle, and can be worked from any available household water supply. . . . This hand pump requires practically no attention when not in use, and is useful for other household purposes such as washing down a car, cleaning windows or watering the garden."
