WOW!!! Was a thrill to receive this from my son in Wauconda,IL. I fanned at SQUAD 11 for many years and was their unofficial mascot (no dogs allowed rule of Capt. Otto Fendt Jr. aka. Capt. Video. The device riding the rt. rear fender is a propane heater for thawing frozen hydrants (johnny pumps) as they were called in NYC. I'm almost certain this is is accurate as it's been a few years. I was a student at Carl Schurz H.S. at that time and I just turned 70 last Dec. I am currently enjoying my 3rd winter in Scottsdale,AZ and we don't have too many opportunities to use such a device. See you all at the next "BIG ONE " The other Rich Lindberg

This is a Great Shot of Squad 11 which I have many memory's of as a kid.I wonder what that device with the black hose around it is over the rear wheel's fender? I never remember seeing that device before.Is that a cutting torch?
