Hey Les, To add to your “Fort Worth Firehall” collection, go to Schwartz Ave @ NE 29th
Street. The building on the SW corner at one time was Station #25. I worked
there back in the late ’70’s. It literally was a small house that had the garage
converted to fit a fire truck. The inside living area had a small front room,
standard size (for the homes in the area) kitchen and bathroom, and one big
bedroom that served as our dorm room. The station was shut down in the ’80’s
when the NEW #25 was built on N Main on the south end of Meacham Field.
A couple more former stations: Old #23, which I also worked at, is located at 3300 Cherry Lane. It is just north of the Camp Bowie West intersection is now houses “Northwest Engravers.” The station was replaced by one on Portales Drive (next parallel street west of Las Vegas Trail). My strongest memory of that station is that in the summer the dormitory could have been leased out for a meat locker. I usually slept under two blankets…..in JULY.
