04/23/11 84 W, 1 I - + 3 - 3 Raleigh Fire Department Roll Call, 1972
As pictured in a News & Observer
feature titled Day in a Life of a Fireman. Nice formation and nice uniforms. They probably didn't require dress blues for every shift change, but perhaps on inspection day or special occasions. Need to ask the old-timers on that. Any departments around here still doing this on a daily basis? And for the young bucks reading, just how alien or endearing does this seem? Click to enlarge:
