Vintage Rope And Wooden Fire Escape with container as manufactured by the
"Ace Ladder Company of St. Louis, Mo. The container measures 24" wide x 17"
high x 10" deep. It contains the rope ladder & which measures out 20 ft.
Looks like it would mount on the floor just under the window sill and you would remove the top, open the window, & throw out. It is in good condition with some ware & tare marks as would be expected & seen in photos. This is the oldest home type fire escape device that I have seen. (FOR DISPLAY ONLY)
