Brookside students know how to multitask—while enjoying playtime, they’re also learning the ins and outs of fire safety. This photo, taken in 1936, shows Brookside students enjoying playtime on the Cranbrook fire engine. Especially endearing are the rubber galoshes; whether the children are wearing them to fight a fire or jump in puddles, they’re prepared for anything.
I believe that my uncle, Dominic Vettraino, is at the wheel.
