Old Scarborough Fire Truck


This one is from my archives - I took it last year at the beginning of the St Patrick's Day parade and I'm not sure why it never got posted. It is a 1945 pumper truck from Scarborough which is the eastern end of Toronto. In 1945 Scarborough was its own township and not yet part of Toronto and so had its own fire department. This truck is a beauty don't you think?

A beauty indeed, and it's older than I am, although in much better condition.
Great shot.

You're right Red Pat, it is a beaut. Can you imagine the thrill of hanging onto the side of that when you get a shout? Have a good weekend pal....
