January 16, 2019 - Today we drove over to Bellflower, CA to visit the Los Angeles County Fire Museum. The Museum is dedicated to the history of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
This 1923 engine was built on a Ford Model T chassis.
We loved the hand-cranked siren on the dashboard.
This 1880's pumper truck was pulled and pumped by hand.
Firemen were stationed along each side to pump these long handles up and down.
The most famous and popular exhibit includes all the featured vehicles from the 1970's television series, Emergency!
On June 30, 2013 nineteen of the twenty Granite Mountain Hot Shots died in the Yarnell Fire in Prescott, AZ. This was their transport vehicle.
There are a lot of restaurants up and down Bellflower Boulevard so making a choice wasn't easy. Luckily, Judy spent some time researching the restaurants along the boulevard and the Bellflower Diner stood out as the safest choice. It's hard to go wrong with diner food and today didn't disappoint us. French toast for me and waffles for Judy. Yum!
