1906 Destroyed Engine at Post & Kearny

CAN YOU HELP US IDENTIFY THE MAKE OF THIS ENGINE?

 A.  1866 Amoskeag Steam Fire Engine, 1st size, No. 175
B.  1872 Amoskeag Steam Fire Engine, 2d size, No. 390
C.  1897 LaFrance Steam Fire Engine, 1st size, No. 374

This is not a quiz.  We do not know the make, only that it was one of these engines.
All were destroyed in The Fire.
