January 18 update. Three more photos added. Does that confirm the exact building? How about a specific year, any guesses? Original posting: What are we looking at here? Can you place the location as well as the timeframe? Click to enlarge:
 





This is going to be either Sullivan or Lee Residence Hall on NC State’s campus. Not sure of the time frame but it is probably before I was born in 1986!

Definitely Lee Hall, another fire alarm activation? ha

An opportunity for some to see how the RFD hose lays were… 1 3/4” horse-shoe on left, 2 1/2” reverse, 3” forward, 1 1/2” horse-shoe on right (obscured from view). These hose lays were used until late 1989 (when the new Pierce engines were received). Many of the Macks continued to use the lay until converted over the next 2-3 years. The Captain in the photo appears to be retired Battalion Chief (Divison Cheif position now) Donnie Perry.

I love those little Macks. They drove like a sports car (compared to the big Mack pumper/tankers at SFFD). We had a pristine little pumper like that (old 122) and had less than 30k miles on it when it was sold. I believe it was a 1985 or 86 Model. Good memories
