The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Comments thanks to Pete Matten:
This is a Ward Lafrance from the early to mid 1970's and were generally used as an Engine Company-this one being Engine Co27.It had all the functions of a normal pumper,but also carries on its deck a 15mtr tele-squrt.Thus the name"Squrt".
