08/21/13 195 W, 1 I - + 4 - 0 Historic Firehouses of San Francisco (and More)


Might be passing through San Francisco in a couple months. Started thinking about attractions and activities. Finding and photographing some old firehouses is a time-tested diversion, except for the sheet scale of the idea. There must be dozens in a city of that size. Who could stop at shooting just a few? Next question, where to find a list of such structures? Or how to justify the time required to research and compile such a thing? (Have other things that need attention.)

Lo and behold and the San Francisco Fire Museum web site presents itself, courtesy of Google. Wait'll you see this site. Three separate pages about current, former, and vintage firehouses, for starters. Dozens, maybe hundreds of the things! And with addresses and dates and photographs. Holy completed research! Plus gobs of other goodies. Company histories, Chiefs of Departments, fire horses, fireboats, notable fires, and more. Exceptionally robust web site. And it gives Yours Truly some good ideas for his history pages, and the Raleigh Fire Museum site. (Yes, someday those sites will be merged.) Check it out!
