Description:
Handheld brass fire extinguisher manufactured by Bickle-Seagrave Limited. This is soda-acid type of extinguisher and a tank contains sodium bicarbonate dissolved in water and a bottle of acid in the top. When the extinguisher is turned upside down, the sodium bicarbonate and acid reacts to release carbon dioxide under pressure and then water/acid solution is forced out of the extinguisher.

Notes:
In 1935, Bickle brothers took over the production and sale of Seagrave fire apparatus in Canada and on 1 January 1936, the name of the company changed to Bickle-Seagrave Limited. This highly successful alliance allowed the company to supply fire departments with all types of apparatus and Bickle-Seagrave soon became the largest fire apparatus manufacturer in Canada. Unfortunately Bickle-Seagrave was forced into bankruptcy in February 1956 and the name was changed to King-Seagrave (after being purchased by Vernon Bickle King) in May, 1956.
