This item is a very rare brass fire hydrant wrench, produced by firefighter/engineer, John Clay. John Clay was a veteran fireman and manufacturer of fire extinguishing appliances out of Philidelphia. Not much is known about John Clay — except for information found on fireengineering.com. However, it is known that in 1898, John Clay donated fire equipment worth $800 if the town erected a suitable fire house building worth at least $1,500 and name the company after his brother George. Today, the George Clay Fire Company still exists. http://www.geoclay.com/history.html
