I see a lot of Bill Stehman's photos posted now, since his collection was sold off by the fire museum in Harrisburg.
I knew Bill for over 20 years, and shot a lot of photos with him.
Although he often drove alone to various places in PA and elsewhere on the East coast, later in life he started letting others do the driving.
Not many people knew that Bill was a railroad employee in Altoona, PA.
He had an earthy, blue-collar outlook and humor about life and his preference in fire apparatus was the bigger, the better!
Baltimore, 4/1995, Bill is the tallest person on the turntable, just behind the cab, he loved tillered aerials.
