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

Type 75 ALF Fire museum New York City
This Type 75 American LaFrance engine was built around 1920. It was the replacement of the horse drawn pumpers in the FDNY. This unit was part of Engine 246 from October 1920 until July 1931. In 1969 this unit was found (after disposal in 1938), by Bob Cerullo, his father Vin Cerullo and Sandy Sansevero. They did a great job restorate this old-timer.
