We're in the thick of history book research these days. Let's hope in our time machine and travel back two decades, when later FireNews Editor Jeff Harkey took these posed photos in April 1992. If memory serves, the occasion was a feature in Fire Apparatus Journal. These images are scanned from prints. Enhanced to improve shadows, but not much color correcting. No time today for negative scans. Maybe later. Top to bottom, left to right: 1979 Mack/1958 American LaFrance, 1981 Mack, 1985 Pirsch, 1986 EEI/Pemfab, 1986 E-One, 1986 Seagrave, 1988 GMC/Union City, 1988 Pierce engine, 1988 Pierce snorkel, 1990 Pierce/1986 EEI, 1990 Pierce, 1990 Spartan, and one of two crazy-huge 1991 Chevy/FrontLine rescue trucks. Who else operated rescue rigs like those? Read apparatus histories.

Mike, looking at the apparatus histories page, are the decimal points correct on the prices of the apparatus? Looks like ladder 4 only cost $98 thousand .

Thanks, some of those trucks were obviously bought cheap-cheap!
