in 1948, ten-year old Hamden fire buff Chan Brainard witnessed Hamden fire apparatrus at work in his Spring Glen
neighborhood. The top four photos are believed to have been taken
somewhere on Bedford Avenue. The bottom four were of a call on
Swarthmore Street near Whitney. All photos are believed to have been taken by Chan's older brother, Bill.
The exact nature of both incidents is
unknown, and neither is believed to have resulted in any serious damage.
But there are some nice views of classic Hamden fire apparatus.
