Here's another sundry document for Sunday reading. Raleigh Fire Department, 1880-1899. The document's been a work in progress for a few years. 'Twas time to release the thing. The decades of the 1880s and 1890s saw the introduction of hydrants and alarm boxes, the formation of new fire companies, and construction of new fire stations. Plus a few big fires. The PDF document numbers 37 pages. There's no quiz afterward, however. Learn more about the history of RFD.
