Scanning has been completed of a trio of fire protection studies, conducted by the city of Raleigh in the 1950s and the 1970s. We blogged about the 1958 report maybe a month ago. The 1970 report was added to the history site a couple weeks ago. The 1977 report was added to the site this evening. The last two are scans of photocopies. Sorry about that. Next up? Maybe full scans of the National Board of Fire Underwriters reports from 1924 and 1931. Or maybe OCR work on the above reports from 1970 and 1977. Add text-only versions to each. We'll see. There's always another geeky task to undertake. Read the docs:
It would be interesting to compare these studies to what stations/units were really built/created.
