Look at this beauty. Rural Hall Fire Department Engine 223, a 1974 International/Howe, 1000 GPM. That's Forsyth County folks. Photographed by Lee Wilson on February 10, 1991. That's his father's hometown. Lee's posted another round of vintage film scans. See that gallery, and look at the end for the latest.

Lee Wilson photo

For comparison, here's a factory photo of a 2010 (?) Pierce pumper found on the company's Flickr site. What's different "then" versus "now" when you compare the two rigs, and two eras of apparatus?

The new 123 was put in service at the end of 2013.
