What kid doesn’t like fire engines?

Readers have kindly supplied several images of Riverton’s fire fighting equipment, old and new.

Matt Mlynarczyk, who now lives in Virginia, sends us this scan of a Riverton fire engine. (We last heard from him last summer (Dig this, July 4, 2016) when he sent in a photo of a rare bottle labeled “MacMullin”  he had found.)

Local residents may have read the Philadelphia Inquirer story in August about a two officers who rescued a “treasure” of thousands photo negatives that were slated for disposal by the Cinnaminson Police Department. This undated photo was among them.

Please advise if you can identify and date the above photo.  – JMc
