Authored by Brian Oliver, with production and history help by Legeros. Superb compilation of Cary FD’s hundred-year history. Props to Lee Wilson in particular for his apparatus shots over the decades. They really helped record the truck history. < Plus a ton of other contributors. Too many to list.

Production notes included as end sheet in the PDF file. (And where corrections will be tracked.) Digital version created using PNG scans of each page, with each PNG image reduced to 2200 pixels on long edge and resampled as 150 DPI. Resulting PDF file then converted to reduced-size version.
