Fire Station 311


Fire Station 311 is found just off Yonge St south of St Clair Ave. When it opened in 1911 it was Fire Station 24 and horses were used to pull  the fire wagons. Times have changed and the city has grown a lot but the station still looks grand.

Nice building in a kind of dutch architecture.

Wow, this gave my a blast from my childhood. My home town had fire stations that looked very similar to this one with bright red doors. Those images popped into my head.

Wonderfully classic fire station. Love the red doors, they really make your photo pop. Surprised this station is still active as most have been replaced with much larger, modern buildings.

There's a building near the C&O Canal in Washington, D.C. that still has an old firehouse sculpture even though it is currently serving as an office for an architecture firm.

...I've seen a few of these old fire stations, but this one has all of the bell and whistle. It's a beauty and thanks for sharing it.

Magnificent design. Quite a contrast to the contemporary one which I posted today.

It looks beautiful. Here gates are often open. Not so nice.
