12/22/08 69 W, 1 I - + 12 - 9 Tiller, Tower, Circa 71-74

Here's a nifty new picture of Raleigh's old training tower and old tiller, from around 1972. The tower was built in 1954 and demolished in 2005. The tiller was delivered in 1958, an American LaFrance 700 Series with a 100-foot ladder. It received a 1979 Mack MC cab in 1980, and was removed from front-line service in 1995. It was removed from reserve service in 1999. Click to see a really big version:

Note the amount of grass by the tower as compared to now…interesting.

Date changed, photo is circa 1971-74. Other images in this series show a Mack CF pumper as Engine 15, which was the second engine at Station 1. The second engine at Station 1 was previous named Engine 10, until Station 10 opened on February 24, 1971. Since Station 15 opened November 13, 1974 with an American LaFrance pumper, the photo dates between February 1971 and November 1974. Ergo circa 1971-74.
