Pulling a Fire Truck, Mighty Atom Style

The Mighty Atom Pulls a Fire Truck with his hair.The Mighty Atom Joe Greensten had unusually strong hair and frequently demonstrated this fact by using it to lift or pull very heavy objects.  Shown here, The Atom pulls a fire truck loaded with people down the street sometime in the late 1920s.  In case you are keeping score at home, the fire truck was an Ahrens-Fox (famously made in Cincinnati, Ohio) -- you can tell by the large distinctive chrome sphere at the front which housed part of the pumping mechanism.
