JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week's photos for my section are from a parade in Dracut, MA in 1951. These are the first of a series of old photos that were taken by the late Stoneham Lieutenant Bob Marshall, which I'll be sharing over the next few weeks. Special thanks to Stoneham Chief Matt Grafton and Captain Jim Marshall for letting me scan the photos. 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.
