Anyone know where the Mack B model and the Pirsch came from? I’m assuming they were donated/purchased used??

I love these pictures. The old Mack and Pirsch were great trucks.

That’s a awesome idea to post all year old to new photos. Who or what did you do to convert slides?

With the help of others, I think the Pirsch used to serve Kensington,MD. Any idea where the Pirsch and Mack ended up after Gumtree? Did they go to another fire department?

You need to put pictures of some of the men from years past

Awesome thanks for sharing
