01/06/11 173 W, 8 I - + 3 - 7 Raleigh Fire Department Historical Drawings


For your hysterical historical enjoyment, here are some fire department drawings done by Yours Truly a few years ago. They were drawn with either Microsoft Paint or Macromedia Fireworks. The floor plan for Old Station 2 is based on the blueprints to Memorial Auditorium, found while exploring old records at the City Clerk's office one year. Old Station 4 is based on the building diagram in tax records, if memory serves. The other two floor plans are based on oral histories. The building facades are based on various photos and might be to scale. Or at least reasonable proportions. The drawings are available on their respectively linked web pages.
