Wellesley, Massachusetts - no other info available.
Doug Boudrow for out your way owns this one...he has it most back in really good looking shape.
Here's the photo he sent me of it - I don't think he'd mind me sharing it. He also sent me some in service pics of "Alice" if anyone is interested I'll post them too.

Re: White/Pirsch

That's a beauty. Here's a similar White (1951) Taneyville FD set up with an electric aerial.
