JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

2017 marks the 20th anniversary for the Northeast Firenews website. It's kind of hard to believe that it's been 20 years since I started this venture and those years sure went by quick. The original site had one page with 6 photos that rotated each week and news items under the photos. A department profile page was added, which was updated every other week. That has grown into a site that has thousands of pages, including one for every department in New England, and a Spotlight page that has countless photos posted every week. The site takes hours to update each week, which doesn't include answering emails, looking into information and assisting with special requests. I guess I did something right somewhere to have so many people not only view the site, but be willing to help out. The site would not be what it is if not for the people that were willing to help with photos as well as the constant stream of information that pours in to keep the site as updated as possible. I thank all of you for your help and assistance over the years. Special thanks to my daughter for adding the 20 year banner to my logos to commemorate this milestone. This week my photos are from Onset, which were taken on the awesome Box 52 bus trip in 2015. 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.
