Photograph gift to the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Jim Rowe, Cincinnati, Ohio 2010. Jim Rowe with his dad’s Fire Chief Car. The boy Jim was born in North Hollywood.

Note: These two photographs were shared by Jim Rowe by email transmission. They were sent as a test to check on the process of scanning images and sending them by the Internet. Thanks Jim, you've added to The Museum's visual knowledge of the Valley during World War II, and both fire protection services and automotive history.
