I have this old 1935 photo of a City of Santa Barbara Ambulance along with another photo of "Master Mechanic Bill Jamison" who was going to convert it into a truck for the Fire Department! I was just wondering if anybody out there might know of/be related to him?

UPDATED: By Neal Graffy

Here is the finished product on October 11, 1935. The photo was taken next to 911 Chapala Street, the Hollister Estate Co. building. The building still stands though since the photo was taken an addition has been added to the north (by street compass) side.

At that time, the Fire Department's main station was at 921 Chapala (now the side entrance/exit to the Carrillo Station) and there were empty lots between the Fire Station and the Hollister Co. building.

Original Poster UPDATE:

Here's a great "Before" shot from the same spot as the "After." Along with a pic of the Mechanic's car, confirming Chapala St. Fire Station location.
