Filled with photos of announcers and station staff as well as studios and transmitters, they were distributed by station clients. The newest addition to our collection comes from WARD in Johnstown, PA, and is from the late 40's. There are many others from all across the US and Canada. CLICK HERE to go to the entire brochure.
A rare look at one of the old horse drawn fire wagons that was high tech for the 1890's. I have no idea which Johnstown neighborhood this is.
I enlarged it to see if I could tell which company this might be - but you can't tell. But now you can see that on the right hand side behind the wagon is a guy standing next to the call box on the pole. When I was searching the internet to see around what year this wagon was from - I ran across this - CLICK HERE from a site on stuff from Disneyland and as you will see - the wagon matches up with the 1890's.
