12/20/08 76 W, 1 I - + 10 - 11 Razor Wire

One interesting feature of Charlotte fire stations are their secure parking lots, with gates and fences and even razor wire on some. Here's the rear view of Station 8 on The Plaza, shot with camera held high over head. Watch your balance, Mikey! Pics coming of this station (exterior), and the three other oldest in the Queen City: Station 5 (1929), Station 6 (1929), and Station 7 (1935). Read more about historic Charlotte firehouses.

Mike – Sweet shot of Station 8 and it’s security features. :)

We have had quite a few break-ins on our cars and the station. Obviously, the razor wire helps keep most people out of the premises. Even with the razor wire we have had people jump the fence to get in some cars.
