02/17/12 109 W, 1 I - + 10 - 6 Raleigh Annual Report Excerpts, 1883 to 1911

For your Friday evening hysterical historical enjoyment, here are (a.) scans of (b.) photocopies of (c.) excerpts of (d.) Raleigh annual reports, for select years between 1884 and 1905 1883 and 1911. Each contains the volunteer fire department's fiscal year summary, plus relevant reports from the Mayor or the Market House Committee or the Water Works Committee. For 1887 and 1888, you can read all about the municipal water system that was installed. That brought fire hydrants in 1887. Then came fire alarm boxes in 1888. Good stuff, and reasonable quality for reading. Read the annual reports. Want to read the whole thing? Here's a Google books copy of the 1885 report.

The above linked historical resource has been updated, adding reports from 1883, 1906, 1910, and 1911.

Please remain calm in response to this news.
