Matteson Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa for #TBT:

For TBT-Here is a photo of Matteson Engine 3, a 1957 ALF 1000 gpm open cab pumper.  It was the first post war purchase for this department. It was retired in 1991.  Next to it is Engine 6, a 1973 Seagrave 1250/500.  This picture not mine, but found on Matteson Fire Dept. website.
