Gary Fire Department history (more)

more from Wayne Stuart:

Gentlemen just ask and you may receive,  I just so happen to have a couple of photos of the Snorkel at work. Photos of it working were pretty rare back in those days. It originally ran as the downtown Truck Company out of Station 1. The first fire was at 10th & Broadway in the late 60’s, not sure where the second fire took place, may have been on Washington St. in the 500 block in the same era.The third photo was it’s last resting place, again not sure of the location.
