Does anyone know what color scheme was used on the Pottstown aerial? I really enjoy seeing these older, open cab rigs with minimal enclosed compartment space. It's neat being able to see the ladders and other equipment that were carried.
The hometown of Pirsch was protected by a Pirsch. I found this one in the eighties in a warehouse owned by a guy who ran a local night club in Amarillo, Texas. The guy restores antique fire apparatus. He was rebuilding a 1925 American Lafrance for Arlington, Texas when I was there. I do not know if he is still there or if he is even alive this many years later.
