9/11 Ladder 118 picture
« on: July 09, 2010, 01:49:58 PM »
I have recently seen in  a book a photo of Ladder 118 crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, responding to the towers, is there a place or organisation where i could purchase a copy of this picture?

I remember that photo showing Ladder Co 118 crossing the Brooklyn Bridge headed to the Towers. I saw the photo in the newspaper the next day. It was really sad as it said all of the members riding that rig on that Terrible day were lost. I'd be interested in what book it is also.

Found a decent-sized black & white. Appears to be a scan from the NY Daily news:

londonfireguy:

Here's an organization that appears to be selling the photo (go to Page 4 if it doesn't automatically send you there):

http://www.911pictures.com/photos_catalog.phtml?category=wtc&prenxt=90

It looks like photo # 911-1489 is the one that was posted in the NY Daily News with Ladder 118. The link above also has "how to order" info.

Hope that helps!
