Fire Station 15, 1913 Posted on August 23, 2011 by Vintage Portland 10 This 1907 fire station at 1920 SW Spring Street was replaced in 1927 by the fire station that is at that address today. The neighboring house is still there too. (City of Portland Archives) Rate this:Share this:FacebookPinterestTwitterEmailRedditLike this:Like Loading... Related
Great old building! I love the lookout in the back.
I agree, pretty cool bldg. There is a police station in San Francisco that this reminds me of.
I like the old building much better than the new building. http://is.gd/Z1pLkx
That “lookout” in the back may very well be the hose drying tower, but I agree, I like this building’s style much better.
Looked like the neighbor did not like having a tall building overshadowing the house… that would only explain the diminutive size of the current building…
Roxanne, do you remember where in SF that station is? I’d like to go check it out.
I have a photo with an address. They don’t really look the same, but it was the same sort of out of the ordinary architectural style that looks odd for a Fire station or a police station. 2475 Greenwich, Old North End Police Station. I am sure you are going to wonder why one reminded me of the other. If it makes you think of the other one, too, let me know…….I don’t know how to get the URL off of Google to show you, unfortunately. It’s the oddly 1920’s Mediterranean style bldg.
(I was in San Francisco and just happened to drive by this place by accident. I took a huge number of photos of the Painted Ladies type of bldg and actually wrote down the address of all the places I photographed…OCD, I know, but handy for reference later.)
I’ll check out the address. It sounds like it might be in the Marina.
The house next door looks EXACTLY the same.
