JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

Last week I had the chance to go to Brockton, Avon, and Holbrook with Mike Boynton and Eric Fellows. It was a nice day and I enjoyed the coverstations with Chief Brian Nardelli in Brockton. Special thanks to Chief Nardelli and all the crews that assisted us with 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.
