JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week for my photos, some photos of a Brockton area trip I made with Mike Boynton last weekend. We took photos in Randolph, Brockton, Whitman and Hanson. A very special thank you to Deputy Galligan in Brockton and all the duty crews for their assistance and hospitality. 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.
