JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week I have just one photo for my section. It's a vintage photo of Stoneham's former Engine 4, a 1945 Dodge brush truck. Even though I have many photos taken by the late Charles Beckwith, I did not have this one in my collection. Special thanks to Mike Z for hooking me up with the photo. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.
