A2011-001.963 : Interior of a fire alarm office

Tuesday, December 31, 1907



Date is circa. Unknown location, presumably this Fire Alarm office was the east side office. The east side alarm office was combined with the City Hall (central) alarm office in 1907, making one central alarm office. Superintendent Walker had been complaining since 1901 that the City was trying to make two independent village alarm systems do the work of a metropolitan system, and he wanted the two alarm stations combined into one.
