While some buckets featured remarkable decoration and artistry, many were quite simple. This bucket is like many which belonged to individual citizens. It is marked only with the name of its owner, George Harrison, painted on an arched banner. This served as identification so that he might reclaim his bucket after a fire was over.
Note: Buckets G19, G23, G30, G39, G41, G42, G48, G53, G103, G107, G122, and G123 all fit this pattern, featuring a name and sometimes a year, with minimal additional decoration.
