Children's Book published in 1936 by Lyons and Carnahan
The following graphics are from Biff The Fire Dog, a 1936 Children's 90 page book (size 7 3/4 by 5 1/2 inch) that was written about the Paterson Fire Department during the height of the Ahrens Fox era. It is a fictional story about a boy (Tom) and Captain Peters and Fireman Joe. August "Gus" Peters was a real Paterson Fireman (President of the FMBA) at the time who did care for a dog. The author J. Harold Straub was President of the Paterson Board of Education. The book remarkably provides a feeling of firefighters, firehouses and fire scenes. There are dozens of more graphics in the book.
