This is Kingsport Fire Department’s No. 1, purchased in 1917. It’s an American LaFrance pumper. I took this in 1979, when I was still shooting Tri-X and processing it myself. At that time, the KFD kept this unit in Station #1 on Island Street. There’s a short history of the KFD right here.
This unit is now in a department-constructed building on the Ft. Henry Drive side of Station #2.
