    @HEMIDAV ,Where did you find the picture of Slo Poke? That truck was owned and built by Charles Hurley in the early 50's. He owned C&H Automotive, a speed shop in Springfield, Mo. in the 60's. RiP Jr jr hurley 439.JPG

    Some vintage photos of early fire stations in Los Angeles.
    Plaza_Firehouse_1888 (1).jpg
    One of the first fire stations built in L.A. It's located in the old Plaza in downtown near Union Station train depot. It's still there and open to the public.
    409208_10151136977340122_1841235407_n.jpg
    Fire Station 28, also in the L.A. downtown area. It's still there, turned into a restaurant I've heard.
    427061.jpg
    An old all wood fire station. Both of these rigs were put into service in 1937, the American La France Duplex pumper on the left (dual V-12 engines) and the Seagrave wagon on the right. Note the size of the water monitor on the wagon, designed for a fireboat.
    2610267089_1178c4f305.jpg
    Art Deco style building. These fire engines were delivered to the city with solid rubber tires and no windshields, and were used like that for 10 to 15 years, until the city upgraded them with windshields and pneumatic tires.

    A lot of the smaller single bay fire stations in L.A were located in housing areas and were built to kind of resemble the homes in the area.

    Same situation with this station.

    Fire station 27, known as "the big house" in L.A. It's located one block south of Sunset Blvd in the heart of Hollywood. It's still there, used as the L.A. City Fire Dept. Museum. The new (and operational) fire station 27 is next door. Most of the early fire stations in Los Angeles have been torn down, especially the big brick buildings, because of earthquake standards, plus the doors were no longer big enough for the newer equipment to fit through, and also the shear weight of some of the newer fire apparatus were causing the floors to sink. This particular building has been re-enforced with steel beams.

    I kind of saved this photo for last. L.A. County fire station 8. It was built in the very late 1940's and is still in use. Some of you gray beards may remember a very early weekly TV show called "Rescue 8", which was filmed there, using a duplicate of the GMC Rescue 8 in this photo. FS_008_by_D_M.jpg
    The apparatus has been updated a little.
