Merry Christmas

After a prolonged break Truckfax will be back after Christmas. In the meantime enjoy a peaceful and joyous Christmas.

Where's the Fire?

In 1971 the old Halifax Infirmary hospital was plagued with false alarms and engines from the University Avenue station seemed to be plowing a path to the hospital daily or more often. One pleasant evening in the summer, the driver of this gleaming King Seagrave was calling in to the dispatcher while his pump man waited at the cab door for instructions.
The hospital stores, boiler room and laundry had a rear service alley off Morris Street where this photo was taken.
