05/12/12 95 W, 3 I - + 6 - 2 Morganton City Hall and Fire Station, 1910

Found for sale on eBay is this postcard of the Morganton City Hall building, which included a fire station in the rear. Never seen this photo before! Sanborn Maps from April 1910 show the structure located on King Street, just west of West Union Street. The volunteer fire department of 25 men operated a horse hose wagon and a horse hook and ladder truck. The town had 45 hydrants. The population was 3500. Don't know when the building was built, or when it was demolished. View the Sanborn Maps. Click to enlarge:
