1890's Horse Drawn Fire Wagon

A rare look at one of the old horse drawn fire wagons that was high tech for the 1890's. I have no idea which Johnstown neighborhood this is.
 I enlarged it to see if I could tell which company this might be - but you can't tell. But now you can see that on the right hand side behind the wagon is a guy standing next to the call box on the pole. When I was searching the internet to see around what year this wagon was from - I ran across this - CLICK HERE from a site on stuff from Disneyland and as you will see - the wagon matches up with the 1890's.
