06/18/09 143 W, 1 I - + 15 - 14 Historic Engine Houses in St. Louis


Vacation's over. Photos have been posted. Two flavors are available from Mr. Blogger's family vacation: three-dozen engine houses, plus St. Louis scenery. See the photo site for that collection. Or just the firehouses and nothing else. Visit Mike's flickr site for that. 'Twas a grand adventure, spread over some eight hours and across three days. Several were drive-bys, due to rain or time. The block-long building housing Station 2, the shop, and the old training tower was visited several times. Who tires of a busy shop? Thanks to the St. Louis Fire Department and historian Bob Pauley for the locations and ages of the current and retired houses. And where's the next destination, you ask? Baltimore beckons in another month. Might photograph more historic BFD houses. Click for photos of current and retired St. Louis fire stations:
