Mussens Ltd - Montreal, Quebec

The advertisement reproduced below for the "Glengarry" brand fire hydrant is from a 1913 Mussens Railway and Mining catalog. The catalog is 900+ pages chock full of machinery ranging from steam shovels to locomotives, ore buckets to diving helmets: there is also equipment for fire fighting.

It is unknown if the "Glengarry" hydrant was produced by Mussens, or made to specification for them by some outside firm. A.J. Morse and Son might have produced this hydrant; they are known to have produced fire hydrants, and made other products for Mussens, such as diving helmets, which were sold under the Mussens name, but clearly labled "manufactured by A.J. Morse".

If you have any information about the history of Mussens Ltd, or any photographs or information regarding their hydrants, please Email Us.
