Firehouse #57 -- July 5, 2012

A design for a new firehouse on Oakland's Sixth Street.  From the 17-September-1896 San Francisco Call


OAKLAND, Cal. Sept 16.— Plans were completed to-day for the construction of the new brick flrebouse on Sixth street. For several years the old engine-honse has been unfit for men to live in, but nothing has been done in the way of permanent improvements. Mayor Davis proposed in his last annual message that instead of fritteriing away money on repairs that permanent brick structures be erected one at a time.  His advice has been followed and the new building will be a model firehouse. Its cost will be about $8000 and the construction will commence at once.
