FDNY Nozzle High Spray (film #1392 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Industrial]

In this 20s firefighting film, a new kind of firefighting device is tested, one that shoots water out of multiple nozzles while moving back and forth on a track. The device is huge and looks difficult to set up and operate, so it’s no wonder this didn’t become standard firefighting equipment. The film does have a lot of historical value in documenting a little-known experiment in firefighting technology. Also, if you want to see lots of water squirting, this is your movie.

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