JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week for my photos, the fire station at Barnes Air National Guard Base.

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.





The fire station at Barnes Air National Guard Base in Westfield, MA.
