Morton Grove Fire Department history

This from Larry Shapiro for #TBT:

For #TBT, here are some shots of vintage Morton Grove fire apparatus as I was going up on the north shore. I was unable to get my hands on the specs when I submitted these.

Down memory lane …

From Steve Redick:

  • Some Morton Grove rigs … the old squad and the Pirsch quint … followed those rigs when they were brand new on my 2 wheeler bike … those were the days …¬†Morton Grove Engine 5 Hendrickson E1 …

  • Summit’s old squad … I loved those old Gerstenschlager type units¬†…

  • CFD H&L2 just after being vacated … no longer standing …

I kinda like looking at these old shots … if you enjoy these photos, why not share some memories with the rest of us ….

Steve
