05/25/11 96 W, 6 I - + 1 - 6 Mystery Platform Revealed / Raleigh's Old Aerialscope

Didn't take readers long to identify the bucket of a Mack Aerialscope in our prior posting. Nor to make the inference that it might be Raleigh's old 1977 Mack/Baker Aerialscope. Our friends in Barnwell, South Carolina, where the apparatus is serving, have shared some other pictures. They purchased the piece as city surplus in 2007. And they shared a couple pictures in 2010. Their latest update shows the cosmetic work they've lately performed, including gold leaf and reflective trim. Thanks for the pictures, Tony. Click to enlarge:

Somehow I missed this. Fascinating! Thanks for the update.
