EWGS 80th Birthday 2015

January 23, 1935
Mayor Alarmed at Condition of City Pavements.  The mayor declared some of Spokane's paved streets are in worse shape for traffic than a plowed field. The mayor wants the legislature to give the cities a portion of the fuel tax. The cities have been getting a small portion of the fuel tax but it expires early this year. Cities are sponsoring a bill to get 25% of the fuel tax.

Nice looking Studebaker  Ambulance with doors on both sides for quick loading.
