Algonquin-Lake in the Hills FPD history

This from Doug Hoyt:

Following up on the Alsip front-mount “bumper pumpers”, here are a few photos of some more Division 2 rigs from the early / mid 80’s.  Algonquin-Lake In the Hills Tanker 174, a Pierce/International.  Not sure of the year, but I’m reasonably sure the pump is a 750 gpm and the tank is a 3000 gal.  I’ve also included a close-up of that pump. Thanks for the chance to share these!

Rutland Dundee FPD history

This from Doug Hoyt:

Following up on the Alsip front-mount “bumper pumpers”, here are a few photos of some Division 2 rigs from the early / mid 80’s.  One is Rutland-Dundee Engine 52, a 1961(?) International, one is Rutland-Dundee Engine 57, a 750 gpm Ford/Darley with a 2000 gal. tank. Sorry that the photos aren’t the best quality; I wasn’t the greatest photographer back then, and some of the pictures got cut off in the printing.  (Still looking for the negatives.) Thanks for the chance to share these!

Chicago Fire Department history

This from Larry Shapiro:

After seeing the photos from Fleet Guy of the two 1985 E-ONE tower ladders that remain in the CFD spare pool, I thought I’d share an image of one when it was brand new. Assigned to Tower Ladder 39, this was on display in the Daley Center Plaza for Fire Prevention Week in 1985 before it was placed in service.  E-238, E-4335 for this rig.
