Firehouse

Well, as you can see parts of the city are ready, willing and able for the start of spring today, March 20, at 7:21 P.M. EDT. Out our way, however, there is still a lot of snow cover along the roadways and across the fields. This is a picture of the old Arbor Street fire house in our old neighborhood. This building is now on the list of National Register of Historic Places in the city. I'm sure our almost daily visits, on our bikes, to check out the comings and goings of the firetrucks and firefighters probably had a lot to do with this recognition. Could there be any other reason? hahaha!

  1. This green door jumps right out at you and is inviting at the same time.

  2. The green in the doorway, the trim, the garage door behind and the lamp all pop. Nice photo.

    Through this green door entered many neighborhood registered voters who voted for JFK back in 1960. This was a time when you could and most people did walk to the voting booths. Way in the distance you can see the car wash sign (it was not a car wash then), which is where the end of the voting line was during that very memorable election.

  7. And I'll bet you want to be a fireman when you grow up! :-)

    Nice building. The green against the red brick gives it a very festive appearance. It's hot!
