Engine 3 Crew, c1913

The Engine 3 crew displays fine looking equipment and horses in front of their fire station circa 1913. Engine Co. 3 was then at 510 Washington Street, which is now the south side of Washington between 15th and 16th.

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.

Fire Station 3, 1950

A 1949 Mack pumper truck sits in front of Fire Station 3, at 1425 NW Glisan, in this 1950 photo. It’s still a fine looking building retaining much of its 100 year old character. It now houses the restaurant Touch√©.

Engine 15 at Station 15, c1948

Engine 15 still operates out of the 1927-built Station 15 at 1920 SW Spring Street in Portland Heights. The present day engine is considerably newer than this 1920s American LaFrance pictured outside the fire station circa 1948. The driver is identified as Carl Christensen.
