12/13/09 68 W, 1 I - + 6 - 8 Charlotte Fire Apparatus, 1955

The May 1955 issue of Hose & Nozzle magazine featured this promotional page about Charlotte fire apparatus. The context was the state fire school being held in the city. American LaFrance, Mack, Oren, Seagrave. Now that's a classic line-up! Don't know if the photos were all taken that year, or if they were "stock" from earlier years. Click once or twice to enlarge:

Anyplace where someone can look at old copies of “Hose & Nozzle”? Is it still published? Thanks!!!
