This from Jeff Rudolph:

Greeting from sunny, warm Florida. In my travels around I located the remains of an old Calumet City, IL American LaFrance engine on some property near Ruskin, FL. Engine 304 has clearly seen better days. Yes there are 2 trees growing up through it. The owner of the property was from East Troy, WI, and moved several vehicles down here years ago.

The photo of 304 as it used to look is a Bill Friedrich photo.
