09/20/11 102 W, 2 I - + 3 - 6 Historic Ambulance Station

We've posted pictures of historic fire stations ad nauseum. How about a historic ambulance station? Saw this while cruising Chicago the other week, in a section of an old police station. The two-story brick building section included a pair of bays, currently covered with security screens. Lettering above bays read Ambulance Patrol. See same in this set of trip pics.

From this Forgotten Chicago page, the building was once home to the Chicago Police Department's 28rd District. Built in the 1920s, it's located on Chicago  Avenue west of Laramie:
