Late to the party but I just found all these great pics, thanks for posting. The pair of shots of Marine 1 at Pier A are fantastic, but this one takes the cake for me, its pretty rare to see any pics of the SPS system alongside WF Gibbs other FDNY handywork, the Fire Fighter. From the date range of this collection I'd imagine this is from the Bush Terminal area when she was operating as Engine 223/Marine 8.

Original paint job as well. When it was repainted, it was a few shades darker.
