From The Past - 1947 American LaFrance Model 775-PGC
Registry Number L-3272 This incredible photo was made by J.A. Tooney in August 1976. This ALF was
one of two identical trucks purchased by the NLRFD. The twin to this truck had been the current Company 5.
It went to Reserve Status. The pumper pictured above came from Station 4 to Station 5 in 1971. Thanks
to John Arthur, historian and photographer of the Little Rock F.D. and North Little Rock F.D.for sending
me this great photo.

The Photo above is another photo made by J.A. Tooney in 1976. This ALF was the second of two identical
trucks purchased by the NLRFD. This truck was originally Company 3, and later was Company 5.
(The 1947 & 1959 ALF's were swapped.) By the time this photo was made, the 1947 ALF
was the First Out Reserve Pumper of the NLRFD. Thanks to John Arthur for this great photo!
