1945 Bickle-Seagrave Pumper

 Old fire truck

Last Friday my husband stopped for coffee and in the parking lot sat this fabulous old pumper!  Isn't it a beauty?

 Sign on the passenger side of the pumper

 Nozzle and fire extinguisher

 Knobs and gadgets

Light and bell


I wasn't the only one interested in this treasure, as you can see.

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

This is a blast from the past for me. The Township Of Scarborough hasn't been around since 1954.

What a fab fire engine. It reminds me of a few years ago when Stouffville hosted an antique fire truck parade along Main St and fireman's games... I think I have a video on VHS tape of the parade. YoungerSon was just a toddler.
