12/02/10 75 W, 1 I - + 7 - 5 Durham Service Ladder Truck

Guess it's history week at Blog Central. Check out this historical photo from the unofficial Durham Fire Department web site. That's Truck 10, a Mack service ladder truck of late 1940s or early 1950s vintage. We'll let our Bull City readers clarify, as well as identify the location of the picture. Tobacco warehouse in the background, what do you think? Meanwhile, see more historical photos. Click to enlarge:

Not sure on the year on the truck, but I believe the structure in the background is the old city garage. Here is a link to a video that also shows a lot of historic photos and information about the DFD, http://www.angelfire.com/nc3/dfd/multime..
