For your Friday enjoyment, here's a 1913 photograph of Raleigh's Hose Company No. 3, in front of old Station 3 on East Hargett Street. This image from the State Archives is usually shown in portrait orientation, and with with the station house also shown. This larger, closer view-- with shadows removed using PhotoShop Elements-- reveals a nifty level of detail. What equipment can you spot in the wagon? Click once or twice to enlarge:
