1949 fire apparatus graphics

Hello all,

Does anyone out there in Mack Land have a better picture of this corner scroll artwork? Or possibly an engine still featuring this artwork? I am trying to reproduce it on the engine in the picture which was repainted without regard to restoring the stripes, lettering, etc. I don't actually know if it was applied by Mack (perhaps someone here knows if Mack did graphics on the engines they produced?) or locally. 

Any help appreciated!

This was our 1947 Mack pumper. I don't have a closeup of the scroll but our 1949 Mack pumper had the same scroll so I'm

guessing that it was a standard Mack design. For the most part, New England Mack fire trucks were basic, no frills work horses.

Dependability was considered more important than "bling".

Sorry about the glare.  I can email higher resolution pictures. Mike. 


Mike Thanks very much this is super helpful! I sent you a private message regarding the high resolution/email. I find it super cool that this is a "factory" design and I'm looking forward to trying to recreate it. I'll post photos of what I come up with once I have some.
