05/19/10 128 W - + 7 - 5 Detroit Former Firehouses


Here's what's likely the remaining old engine houses still standing in Detroit. They include a couple buildings otherwise active: headquarters and the training academy. The last three are Highland Park houses, a community nearly entirely surrounded by Detroit. The first is a former village hall, subsequently a DFD house.

Shown in the order photographed. Utilized a combination of Google Maps, Microsoft Streets & Trips, and Garmin GPS to create and follow a logical route. Took two days, with rain. More views later, perhaps with perspective corrections. Those angles are a bugger. Plus, labels for everything. Plus, many other sights around town. No photographer was harmed during the making of these pictures.
