Richmond's 1968 Hub International
I was looking over some of my old photographs recently and have found that some of them are damaged by the photo emulsion on the print sticking to the plastic display sleeves. I have started scanning some of these early photos to preserve the image and thought I would post some here. Richmond, B.C. once had this 1968 Hub International CO8190 pumper with 1050 IGPM pump and 250 IG water tank. This photo was probably taken near the end of it's service life, in the late 1980's.
