For our readers today: A wonderful group photo of Chemical Engine Company, circa 1948, courtesy of Lou Lambruschi. It's also been dissected into up close shots for your enjoyment. And...also for your enjoyment, it's followed by a 1967 Chemical Engine item featured in a previous post at Everything Croton--and courtesy of the outstanding archives maintained by the volunteers of THE CROTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY, as well as some more recent Chemical Engine photos.
Click on the images and enjoy.
