This from Jim Fisher:

These were taken by my father, Ralph O. G. Fisher who was a Chicago fire buff (past president of the 511 Club) and amateur photographer.  I am sure many of your subscribers will find them very interesting.

Chicago Fire Department history

This from Steve Redick:

I found another treasure from the archive my dad preserved. A full page COLOR photo spread from July 1939!  This was billed as the 2nd ever thrill show with an attendance of 70,000. You can make out some classic apparatus. I was able to use photoshop to restore this to almost perfect condition. My dad must have been 10 years old at the time so I am assuming my grandpa might have been the one to put this aside originally. I think this is too good not to share.
