Two different views. View on left: The death of a Los Angeles fireman's wife reveals a dramatic story of comradeship among firefighters who risk their lives together. When Mrs. Florence Mull lay ill, her husband's "buddies" of Company 45 told him, "You stay home and take care of your wife. We'll take care of your job." So they gave up their own days off and worked for Mull. The self-sacrificing firemen are, from left to right: James Brooks; Walter Wiseman; Charles Thomas; Roland Davidson; and Hubert Walker. Captain Granville Anderson also gave up days of leave to work for Fireman Roscoe F. Mull so that he could nurse his dying wife and look after their two children. View on right: Photo of Roscoe F. Mull and his children, Barbara Elaine, 3, and Marjorie Eleanor, 12. Photo dated: March 11, 1930.
