01/07/11 64 W, 1 I - + 1 - 1 Chapel Hill's First Fire Station

Here's a picture from the North Carolina State Archives (N_2002_3_10) of Chapel Hill's first fire station and pumping engine on Main Street, later named Franklin Street. The engine was purchased in 1921, so the picture probably dates around then. It's a halftone image, thus the dotted look. Read more CHFD history. Click to enlarge:
