12/20/12 135 W, 2 I - + 2 - 5 Slow News Week...

Actually it's a busy Mike week. Deadlines for the fire department history book. Mr. Blogger is busying being Mr. Copy Editor and Mr. Proofreader. Happy to have a project over the holidays. Things tend to slow down during Christmas. And we meaning me isn't good at being slow. Then there's the dreaded/wonderful day itself, when everything is closed. That is, except emergency services. And the movie theaters. Will be first in line for one of the new movies that day.

Again, got nothing. Guess we'll throw a couple random historical pictures here for collective enjoyment. See if you can place these. More later, longer series and proper labels later. Photographs by Robert L. Ott Sr. by way of his son William Ott. Click to enlarge:

Well, 1st truck is from Salter Path (Cateret Co.), obivious from the 80s (?), is the department called Indian Beach now? Looks like a Ford C Chassis.
Bottom, is from Atlantic Beach (Carteret Co.), the Fire Stix Pumper they are currently selling. The red Pierce Arrow Pumper, I suspect is from mutual aid from Pine Knoll Shores. Think another 80s shot.

Fire is in Emerald isle.
Sign over the Salter Path is the Bouge Inlet fishing pier.
There is still a small strip mall there today.
PKS still has the Pierce Dash. I believe Emerald Isle sold their Dash to Stella Fire Dept.
