EMS Classics: A Collection of Ambulance Photos

EMSClassics.com is offering the following book for sale, "EMS Classics - A Collection of Ambulance Photos".

About the Book:

This book is an eclectic collection of old photos of ambulances of various makes and types, together with a bit of historic information and my own personal observations. Some photos are black and white, others are colour; some are professional photographer quality, others definately not. Most of the photos are from Canada and the United States; a few are from other countries. Some photos feature restored ambulances. Most of the photos present ambulances when they were still 'working'. A few of the photos have been previously featured in other professional car publications; however most are published here for the first time. If you are fond of classic ambulances I am certain you will enjoy this book!

About the Author:

I was born and raised on a farm at Hague, Saskatchewan. After high school I worked at Ray's Ambulance in Saskatoon, then Universal Ambulance in Calgary, and then started Crescent Ambulance Service in Saskatoon in partnership with Ken Sawatsky. In 1975 Ken and I founded Crestline Coach and together with business partner Ronn Janzen operated the company until 2004. I am now retired and spend my time writing books and articles about Canadian ambulance history and searching for old ambulance photos in archives across Canada.

Yep, that’s me back in 1969
