Love the photo – can you post a hi-res (or larger) version of this one? You have a wonderful blog/site/resource – I read it often. I’d love to share some of my firehouse/station photos with you at some point – I’ll send you some links to my Picasa galleries.

Thanks for all you do.

Ah – I see that it’s an Orlando Sentinel photo. I’ll contact them and see if they can get me a hi-res. Sorry – I just assumed you had taken this photo!

My bad-

There’s more info on the construction of this station via the City of Orlando Web site – some interesting architect renderings and other photos for those interested: http://www.cityoforlando.net/fire/Fireho..
