 An additional page added to Mike D., aka "mikeindabronx", GREAT Fire Photos.

 Here is the latest of when fires were just a routine part of life in the streets of New York.

 Thanks Mike. And let me remind everybody that during this time, photography was a very special skill and talent. It took special speed film, special flash equipment and you never knew how the picture came out until they were developed.

 Once again Mike, a Great Job done. Those were the days.

Looks like a not quite right "single-slide" rope evolution.  Perhaps this is a method no longer in use?  Or the guy forgot to tighten the life belt?

Perhaps it was a drill? The way I see it it's only a short parapet wall unless I'm not seeing correctly. Secondly, the guy on the rope seems to be an officer and the guy standing in front of the line is an officer. And last, but not least no one has any turnout gear showing and another member is having a smoke. As for the arrow Chief I'm not seeing it either.

No, I think Mike ran out of film and the gentleman was rappelling off the roof to get him some more film quickly. ;D

If you look carefully, he has his feet planted firmly on a ledge.  He's just stuck there because the other guys won't let him back up until he coughs up the meal money.  8) ::)

Thank you Mike for continuing to share your photographs of the job from the 70's and 80's. Great memories of some of the best years of my life, I miss it everyday.
