A Guide to Cincinnati's Historic Firehouses. Book


A Guide to Cincinnati’s Historic Firehouses.  This publication was prepared by The Cincinnati Fire Museum. Photographer: Charles E. Brooks.  In 1980 the Cincinnati Fire Museum opened its doors to the public in the beautifully restored Engine Company #45 firehouse. When the Cincinnati Fire Department was organized in April of 1853, it inherited the old houses of the Volunteer companies.  Many of these were little more than clapboard sheds used to store hand-drawn equipment. Most of the firehouses constructed during the period off 1850 to 1860 have now disappeared in the wake of modernization and urban development.  The oldest firehouses that still remain today are those build after 1850 in the downtown area. The fully illustrated book  covers a period of firehouses and of course, much nostalgia.  Hardbound. B&W and superb color photos. Pgs. 104. Book measures approximately  9 ¼” X 12”.
