01/26/13 70 W, 1 I - + 8 - 2 Raleigh Fire Department, Circa 1939

Here's a new old photo that was recently received by the Raleigh Fire Museum, by way of clippings and other materials from the late retired Captain Joe Hobby. That's the 1939/1917 American LaFrance aerial ladder in front of Memorial Auditorium, and presumably with the entire fire department pictured. We'll date this one circa 1939, when the tiller's new cab was delivered. Click once or twice to enlarge:
