01/22/11 83 W, 1 I - + 2 - 2 Old Station 6

Here's what old Station 6 looks like these days. Engine 6 operated from the left side of this building at 2519 Fairview Road from 1943 to 1948. Don't be confused with the two-story building beside it, which is incorrectly shown as the station location in my first volume of Raleigh & Wake County Firefighting. Easy mistake to make, perhaps. Until an a-ha moment some years later, while comparing a vintage photo showing a single-story building with the incorrectly identified two-story structure. Duh! Click to enlarge:
