JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week's photos for my section are actually fire trucks! Say it ain't so! I had the privilege of being invited to photograph the Massport-Logan apparatus with Mike Boynton and Eric Fellows. It was a great morning and I enjoyed seeing all the ARFF equipment. It was also nice to see Captain Mike and Lieutenant Ray and catch up with them. Good to see you guys. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.
