Fire Station 16, 1915

The days of horse-drawn fire apparatus were nearing an end when this 1915 photo in front of Fire Station 16 was taken. Drive by the building at 1436 SW Montgomery St.; it still looks much the same today, minus the horses.

  1. In Brooks Oregon during their annul “steam up” the last weekend of July and first weekend in August, there is often a working steam powered fire wagon like in this photo. Sometime 2 show up but I believe only one of them works. They usually set up in the future fire museum area of the park.
