07/26/08 111 W, 1 I - + 14 - 12 Baltimore Former Firehouses

Last minute project, locating retired BFD engine houses that are still standing. The guys at Steadman Station got me started with about a dozen locations. Left to right, top to bottom, Baltimore Street just west of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, S. Caroline Street near Gough Street, 700 N. Eutaw Street, 414 N. Gay Street, McColluh Street at Gold Street, North Avenue east of Mt. Royal Avenue, and 323 N. Paca Street. Dates, information, and other stations are pending. Might be a good project for next year's visit. In the meantime, here's a page with considerably more information, from the Ghosts of Baltimore site.

Here’s a house on Locust Pointe that I shot some years ago, http://www.legeros.com/photos/expo05/sli..

Looks like there are 40+ old stations in the city! I’d better add an extra day or more next for shooting! Here’s my list, draft form, posted to the BCFD forum of the Watch Desk: http://www.thewatchdesk.com/forum/showth..
