SUMMARY- All interior photographs are black-and-white. You get a cliff notes version of the history of fire fighting and a survey of all the equipment that has been developed to do so.

Shire Publications always includes a reading list and a visitor or museum listing where you can see real examples of the subject matter of the issue. I love that feature of these books and think it's worth the price of admission all by itself!
