Transcription"Demonstration Model: Solomon S. Schimke in his shop with a demonstration model of his Tel-A-Larm. He is standing next to the control unit. Next in order are a model fire station, a small pump to illustrate the water pump in the fire hall, and a house to demonstrate how smoke will set the alarm system functioning. To make the demonstrations more real, Schimke has a small siren, which wails when the device is set in motion." - caption with image published in the Sunday Fargo Forum, May 27, 1956, p. C-1.
