JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week for my section I have a few Stoneham photos. 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.





Best wishes to Stoneham Captain Al Minotti in his retirement after serving for 33+ years with the department.


Stoneham's 2018 John Deere UTV, which has already been used to assist a number of injured persons in the Fells and on the new bike path.
