07/10/10 120 W, 1 I - + 9 - 5 Location of Fires in Buildings, 1922

Thanks to Mrs. Blogger for finding this. That is, finding a mention of this, in Scott Huler's book about Raleigh's infrastructure On The Grid. This nifty city planning map from 1922 was photographed at the State Archives, and stitched together in passable fashion using PhotoShop Elements.

Same shows locations of fires in buildings from September 1, 1921 to September 1, 1922. The three fire station locations have been added as blue squares, Station 1 on W. Morgan Street, Station 2 on S. Salisbury Street, and Station 3 on E. Blount Street. Station 4 on Jefferson Street and Station 5 on Park Drive wouldn't be built for five more years.
