Since we're diving so deep into the past, let's add some other photographs. These appear on my outdated history pages of Wake County fire departments. Yeah, yeah, living the past, but the pictures and stories are pretty darn cool. Click to slightly enlarge all:

Finding the orange truck interesting. Going to remember this pic, for use in tne NC chapter when the book project begins …

Mike – do you know who actually “owns” the photo?

Tim – I have sent that information via e-mail. If memory serves, that’s a scan of a 3×5 snapshot. It will likely produce acceptable (but not much more) results if printed on de-luxe paper in a book. Better would be photos scanned from 8×10 prints, or preferably 35mm film negatives or 35mm slides. You’ll find all this out, of course, if/when/as you embark down the road of authorship and photo research.
