Title

Children riding in Carnation Fire Dept. Engine

Description

Black and white image of a number of children riding in the back of a vintage fire truck with 'Carnation Fire Dept.' printed on the side. A ladder hangs on the side, and a bell is attached to the rear of the truck. Carnation was located to the south of Forest Grove and so-named because the company, founded in Washington State, had a milk condensery nearby. 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.
