Beaverton Fire Department Engine with ladders


Black and white image of a fire engine with ladders on the sides turning the corner onto Main Street with the Washington County Courthouse just visible in the background. A crowd gathered along the edges of the streets watches. Three women sit in the cab of the truck next to the driver, and on the front of the engine 'Beaverton F. D.' is lettered. An ax is fastened on the cab just behind the door, and lettering there reads 'City of Beaverton Fire Dept.' and '6|6'. On the ladders is a sign stating 'Our Present 1962.' This image was part of the H. E. McMullen bequest. Herbert McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other photographs and images of daily life in the area.
