03/18/15 100 W, 1 I - + 9 - 5 Vintage Photo of Durham's 1978 Ford/Sutphen Pumper

Found for sale on eBay is this 35mm slide scan of a 1978 Ford C/Sutphen pumper (1000/500) in Durham. No date or photographer credit. The Durham Fire Department had two of these, as Engine 4 and Engine 5. Other early Sutphens included a 1976 Sutphen 85-foot aerial platform (1500/200) as Ladder 2 and a 1978 Sutphen 85-foot platform (1500/200) as Ladder 3. Source is this delivery list by Dave Organ. Two decades passed before the department others, beginning with a series of platforms and ladders delivered in 1997, 2000, 2003, 2004, and 2005.
