FDNY Chief Officers (film #1391 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Industrial]

Silent film from the 20s showing the various officers of the New York Fire Department. They do this by filming the various firemen walking down the street. Off course, this gives you some great glimpses of 1920s New York streets, which is good, because otherwise this would be boring. Tacked on the end is a segment on fire alarms which is fairly interesting. Again, this has historical value in documenting the NYFD in the 20s.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
