The following 3 photos were sent to me by John Caracciolo, LBFD retired. Taken outside the old City Hall on Park Ave and believed to be in the late 20's or early 30's. The first ladder truck is shown in the photos. If anyone has any other info on these photos please email me using the button above or below or email John C. If you can put names to the faces let me know which photo and where that person is standing. Enjoy!
