It was during or after when WNYF was first published in 1940. I'm sorry I let my collection go. I had them from the onset when my dad was in the job.

I have one from 6/1928. I scanned it and tried to post it but an error message came up saying that it was more than 200 something and couldn't be attached. It is on a legal sized paper. I'll take any help with posting it.

No it wasn't. It is of the same style that appeared several times in the WNYF. I'll try to get it posted but I'll have to play around with it a bit.

I have web space available to use. If you can email the file I'll host it online.

Thanks everyone ! The earliest one I have is from the 1965 Super Pumper edition and it's just a Battalion & Division map

The Hospital Stable listed at 100 Chrystie St was the FDNY Horse Hospital that had ramps instead of stairs between floors & was used into the '70s as an FDNY  Communications storehouse.
