One of the few images of the newly modernized Central Station in Fort William, this photograph from the 1940s shows both the station and the Department’s new 1941 two-ton Chevrolet hose truck, which included a Bickle booster pump and a water tank. At the far right of the photo is Harold Lockwood, who would become Chief in the 1950s, and Chief E.H. Dean. (Information by E.J. Gilbert).
