From the late 1940s through the 1950s, American LaFrance was by far the most popular fire truck manufacturer in the U.S. This collection chronicles the most intricate changes the manufacturer made to its revolutionary 700 Series in developing the short-lived 800 Series. Archival photographs are suplemented with articles from Americans LaFrance's corporate magazine and sales literature, as well as features that appeared in Popular Mechanics.
