Chicago City Manual, 1915 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Chicago City Manual, 1915 London had no fire bell; alarms of fire were given by human voices - as told by one Wiseman, quoted in our pamphlet - voices shrill, piercing, frightful. The great fire was advancing. Now the cry of fire in every street - with horrid emphasis - is echoed forth: these dreadful screams disturb our midnight quiet.
