Another gem from the Mid-Week Pictorial, with a hint of doubt from a caption writer: “Two recruits at the Fire Department School hit the bullseye after hurtling down from the second floor toward the concrete pavement below, trusting their lives and limbs to the two dozen of their companions who hold the life nets in a firm grip.” Chief David J. Oliver stood rear center, instructing the drill. Jan. 3, 1937. Photo: William C. Eckenberg/The New York Times
