09/29/12 149 W, 1 I - + 7 - 2 History Book - Some Photos

For your Saturday morning enjoyment, here are some historical photos lately compiled for the Raleigh Fire Department Centennial History Book, currently in production. There are part of the specialty pages we've previously posted about. Exciting stuff, and great fun for Yours Truly. This is my fourth book project, and they become pretty fun after the initial heavy lifting. (And in curious five-year cycles. The Arcadia books starting in 2002, the 95th anniversary book in 2007, and now now.) Learn more at www.facebook.com/rfd100book.
