04/10/12 146 W, 1 I - + 5 - 4 UPDATED: Specification For Fire House on Jefferson Street, 1926

For your Monday evening amusement and amazement, here's the original spec sheet for Fire Station 4 on Jefferson Street. The 32-page document is titled Specification For Fire House on Jefferson Street, Glenwood, Raleigh, N.C., For the Raleigh Fire Department. The author is H. P. S. Keller, Architect, of Raleigh.

The bungalow-style fire station was built just off Glenwood Avenue at 505 Jefferson Street. It operated until 1963 and still stands today. The station opened on June 15, 1926. Eight men were assigned there, one Captain, one Lieutenant, two Drivers, two Hose men, and two Hydrant men. The document was copied with the help of the City Clerk's office, who pulled some off-site records for Yours Truly some years ago.
