JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week I have some new photos for my part of the page. I was asked by Seagrave to take photos of Waltham's new rescue for a brochure they want to make on their heavy rescue line. I'm not asked to take photos by manufacturers very often, so this was a big honor for me. The crew of Rescue 1 was fantastic and very patient as I photographed all aspects of this pretty impressive rig. On the same day, I teamed up with my friend Mike Boynton and got photos of Tewksbury's new Ladder 1 and Arlington's reserve Engine 5. A big thank you to the firefighter in Tewksbury for helping us out as well as the crew of Arlington Engine 2 for moving Engine 5 out for us. 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.






Arlington, MA recently placed into service this 1998 Pierce 1250/500/200F as reserve Engine 5. The unit had previously served as Cambridge Engine 3.
