If you were sitting in the "old man's seat" behind the cab, directly in front of you was a compartment which stretched the with of the rig and companies kept the "Scott-Paks" in the black cases within that compartment. I think the shovel may have been in there also.

Mand Library research shows the following regarding L173 apparatus (including 1966-1968):

L173 was organized on 12/2/66 with their first apparatus, a 1955 FWD 75 foot wooden tillered aerial with FDNY registration # 381, that was originally assigned to L121 on 5/20/55, then re-assigned to L137 on 4/12/60 and finally to L173 on 12/2/66. It was replaced at L173 on 3/23/72 by a 1968 ALF 100 foot metal tillered aerial with FDNY registration # 490, originally assigned to L28. That was actually the very last FDNY aerial with a three digit registration number. The next four FDNY ladder trucks were given the then new registration number series starting with AL6901, to designate a 1969 ALF ladder truck of 1969 (A for ALF, L for ladder and the four numbers to designate the year (1969) and the order in the series - these were 1969 100 foot tillers to L48, L38, L108 and L38 in this order (AL6901, AL6902, AL6903 and AL6905). AL6904 was a 1969 ALF 100 foot rearmount ladder originally assigned to TCU (Tactical Control Unit) 732. The only other 1969 ladder truck was SL6906, a 1969 Seagrave 100 foot rearmount assigned to L27-2 (the second section of L27). There were also four 1969 75 foot tower ladders. These were Macks with a Baker hoist and Eaton booms assigned to L119, L44, L14, and L105 with FDNY registration numbers MT6901, MT6902, MT6903, and MT6904 in that order. The M indicated a Mack with the T being a tower ladder.

If you were sitting in the "old man's seat" behind the cab, directly in front of you was a compartment which stretched the width of the rig and companies kept the "Scott-Paks" in the black cases within that compartment. I think the shovel may have been in there also.
