Presenting historic, former, and current firehouses of the Quad Cities, IA/IL. Left to right, top to bottom, are Davenport's Central Fire Station (1905), Old Station 3 (1921), Old Station 6 (1930), Old Station 7 (1905), and Station 3 (1964); Moline Old Station 3 (1908) and Old Station 4 (1910); Rock Island Old Station 3 (1930s?), Old Station 6 (1917), Old Station _ (1900), and Old Station _ (?). That last one's been turned into a public library. See the entire series of photos, which includes a couple others. And we'll consider this trip closed. The thing isn't over until all photos are processed, of course, and all knowledge is transferred.
 





I was just out there last year, doing some work at the arsenal. The comm center’s husband is a Davenport firefighter, and her inlaws live in a renovated historic Davenport firehouse. Sounded really cool. Neat area of the country.

Oops – the comm center supervisor’s husband….
