JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

Last week I had the opportunity to visit some fire stations with Bob Fitz, Mike Boynton, Chuck Lowe, Eric Fellows (with Pierce) and Art Burns. A very special thank you to Chelsea Fire Deputy Quatieri and the crew of Ladder 2 for taking care of us and bringing over the new Rescue 1 and Ladder 2 as well as Ladder 3. We then got a few shots in Cambridge of a transport bus and Rescue 1. Thank you to Doug Boudrow, the crew of Engine 3 and the crew of Rescue 1 for their help. And finally we ended up in Waltham where we got great photos of the new Tower 1. Thank you to the awesome crew of Tower 1 for helping us out big time. 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.
