Thanks Brad for posting that.

I was told by Dan R that this picture was a taken of a Providence Firefighter. Generations before we came along.

As I understand it, the hook had to be screwed onto the handle before it could be used.

Thanks Joe for posting those pictures of Providence. Of course the first two rows include Boston FD rigs (excluding one).

Those pictures were posted for me by "R1SmokeEater", Jamie M of the Yonkers FD.

As I remember the 75 ft Tower Ladders were bought from the FDNY. Former Ladder 13 and 114, I think. When I saw them parked at the shops before the rehab job I thought what a mistake to buy these. As you can see in the pictures, the Providence Shops did a GREAT JOB. I was told they did most of the work themselves.

Some FDNY Photos included too.
