06/05/11 106 W, 1 I - + 3 - 3 Station 3 in 1943

Random Raleigh Fire Department historical photo from 1943. Fire Station 3 in its original location at 135 E. Hargett Street. Left to right are William J. "Bill" Lindsey (1933 to ?), Lawson H. "Foots" Glenn (1926 to ?), Capt. W. Leonard Choplin (1914 to 1949) , James A. "Jimmy" Poole (1926 to 1967), Bernard C. "B.C." Dowd (1933 to 1945), Dempsie D. Collins (1929 to 1964), and William "Bill" Kelly (1943? to ?). The shape in the lower-left corner looks to be a dog that declined to stand still during what was likely a longer camera exposure. The photo comes courtesy of Poole's daughter, Betty Poole Brinkley. Click to enlarge:
