  1. "Kill" is from the Dutch language, it refers to a body of water such as a creek, tidal basin, or small river. You will see the word used in places where many Dutch settled such as New York and Pennsylvania.
  2. In 1975 I visited the Mack World Headquarters in Allentown and purchased this sweatshirt. No way does it fit anymore but I've held on to it all these years.
  3. "The F.D.N.Y. Super Pumper System" by John A. Calderone may still be available. A good book on the subject.
  4. I found two photos of Mack "R" models. The calendar was missing two months.
  5. I believe that the rear steer on the Tender was to facilitate picking up the large diameter hose after use. The plan was to back the Tender up as the hose was reloaded and the trailer could be steered. Apparently, the concept wasn't practical and the tiller was removed. Original plans for the Tender were to have the hose mounted on reels but that didn't work out either. In any event, I would like to have seen it in operation back in the day. Too bad that it didn't end up in either the FDNY or Mack museums.
  6. About 20 years ago I was out for a walk when something bright red on the side of the road caught my eye. I went over to look and found this 1973 Mack calendar. It's condition wasn't too bad. My favorite photo is October, 1973 which features six FDNY Aerialscopes.
  7. My late father-in-law drove that Mack "ED" when he worked at Abbott Machine Company.
  8. I used to make deliveries to Sylvania in Hillsborough and would drive by Kemp's. I never stopped in. I remember that he had Litchfield, NH Fire Department's 1937 Maxim sedan cab pumper and one of Lowell, MA Fire Department's Mack "C" model pumpers with the roof cut off of it. I think that the roof was put on Hopkinton, NH Fire Department's semi-cab Mack "C" model ladder truck.
  9. A photo of this 1918 Mack "AC" appears in John B. Montville's book, "Mack". It is an aircraft searchlight truck with dual radiators, generator, and light projection equipment.
  10. Bedford, MA Fire Department purchased a 1972 Mack "CF", 1000/500, from FDNY and had it rehabbed by E. J. Murphy in 1984. Murphy built a crew cab with matching doors.
  11. Just curious, Hagerstown is now Volvo Powertrain but the workers are Mack employees and UAW members? What operations are in Jacksonville, FL?
  12. All the "B" model fire engines that I operated ('56 - '62) had 707s and five speeds, the "L" models had four speeds.
  13. Market Basket Supermarkets, MA/NH/ME, is selling this reusable shopping bag with a Mack "Anthem" logo on it.
  14. Market Basket Supermarkets is pretty consistent in its vehicles. For a long time all its tractors were Ford "L" series then it changed to Mack Pinnacles and now Mack Anthems. Its service vans are all red Ford "E" and Transit vans. Not sure if these are leases or company owned. Market Basket is big in eastern MA and southern NH plus one store in Maine.
