JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week for my section I have some photos from the Stoneham Fire Department. Firefighter Dave Eastman was promoted to the rank of captain! Congratulations Dave! 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.





Congratulations to Dave Eastman on being promoted to the rank of captain in the Stoneham Fire Department.
