WOAH! IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME! I didn’t give up on this site… I promise! So this next post is for Ron Chernesky who is a regular in engaging the site with comments, info, and actually even appears in one of the school photos. I wish I could be a bit more informative on the subject of the Manville Rescue Squad, but unfortunately all I have at the moment are a few amazing photos. I am glad that he asked about the rescue squad though, because in my digging through photos I discovered a photo of a Charlie Chernesky, whom I’m assuming is of some relation to Ron. I can’t say where this building was, but I’m 99% sure that someone that looks at this site can tell us. Like all of the other buildings in 50’s Manville there is close attention paid to the design of the building. From the sign across the top, to the finely constructed door and garage bays this building is just awesome looking. If you look at the first aid vehicle fleet photo at the bottom you can see that flooding was obviously always a concern in town, as there are a bunch of life preservers hooked up to one of the trucks. All photos by Neal Ranauro. If anyone can contribute any info please do.
JUST A GREAT LOOKING BUILDING
