The year is 1972, and Ty Taylor has been trying to find the pieces to the 1920 American LaFrance engine for a couple of years.  They have enough together to make the trip to Portland and participate in the Rose Festival “Merrykhana Parade.”  I’m not sure who this boy is, but I bet we’ll find out.

It took another 12 years to complete the restoration.  Ty Taylor didn’t live to see it completed, but the Hood River Fire Station is named in his honor.

The post Parade Time appeared first on The History Museum of Hood River County.
