A request for assistance

International Harvester- Hinsdale Agricultural Center Apparatus Photos

Hello,

I was curious if someone on your blog may have photos of the International Loadstar 1800/Pierce fire engine and Travel-All ambulance that were used by the fire brigade at the International Harvester Agricultural Engineering Center in Hinsdale (Burr Ride) in the late 70s.  An IH retiree provided the attached photo but looking for additional photos if they may be out there.

Thanks!

Steve Ford
