The following is a postcard showing the 'Hotel Pines' supplied to us by

From the left, the brothers Matt, Philip, Sandy, Tom, and their father H.A. Shannon.  We've lost my father, Tom, his brother Sandy and my grandfather, H.A.  My father once wrote a song about how rich BBI has made all our lives, asking from the beach "I wonder what the poor people are doing back home?'

I can't tell you who the sender or recipient were, but the postmark is 1912!

I talked with Dad many times about scanning and posting some of the old BBI items he'd collected over the years.  Now as I sort through his stuff, I will share them with you as I find them.  I hope you all enjoy them.

Article in the 1/31/2008 Ann Arbor News. The trucks were given to BBI by Ypsilanti in the '60s, and have now been returned to Ypsi for restoration by the Fire Museum and Washtenaw Community College.

A clipping from The Detroit News.  What year?

The back of the postcard from ebay

I bought this off ebay
