It's a Wooden Fireman’s Rattle! On August 12, 1658 the “rattle watch” was formed in New Amsterdam. Eight men were employed to walk the streets each night. The rattle watchmen patrolled, what is now New York City, warning of threats or fires.

It’s a Corridor Engine! This particular piece came from Wales, probably 1850-1900. Corridor Engines were used in properties that were remote from fire companies. This piece was made by Shand Mason. Thanks to all those who took a guess!

This is a bed key. In the 1800’s, beds were valuable possessions and often slow to burn. Firefighters used this tool to quickly disassemble and remove beds.
