Those guys aren't buffs. They were from a private firm contracted by the city to figure out down-sizing FD operations. ::)

  That 1947 Mack L 750gpm pumper (#1148) served at E65 from 1947 to 1951 when E65 and E71 swapped rigs. E65 got E71's 1938 ex-World's Fair Ahrens-Fox Model HT 1000gpm pumper (#3423). That '47 Mack was with E71 from 1951 to 1958 then went on to E257 as a hosewagon.

E 274 also had a 1947 Mack  (#1167)  that served our community until 1965!
