Chicago FD history

This from Steve Redick for #TBT:

This is a fun memory. Engine 25 and Snorkel 4 in front of the brand new fire academy in 1961. My dad can be seen in the basket, he’s the one on the right with the glasses. This was a postcard. I have seen it around over the years but I wonder how many were actually produced.

CFD History … SS1/Squad 5

This from Dennis McGuire, Jr.:

A friend of mine sent me this photo of what remains of the Hendrickson/Pierce squad of Chicago as of this year.
He said it was up north in Minnesota somewhere
what a shame it couldn’t have been saved.
