Description

Walt McCall follows up his successful Classic American Ambulances 1900-1979 Photo Archive with a new and expanded title that fills in a heretofore missing chapter in American emergency vehicle history. This book chronicles in words and photos the evolution of the emergency ambulance in America over the past 100 years. From the slow jouncing horse-drawn vehicles in use at the turn of the last century to the fleet electronics-laden advanced life support units on the streets and highways of today - you'll find it all here. A fascinating story that is long overdue. The book is divided into chapters illustrating ambulances by decade. Each chapter begins with 2-4 pages of text describing major innovations and improvements introduced during the decade.
