Long Description:
"City Architect Newton J. Tharp designed Engine Co. No. 2 in the orderly and symmetrical "City Beautiful" style to proclaim its civic importance, adding emblematic shields and prominent inscription to further enhance the claim. Faced in Vancouver granite, with windows flanked by ionic pilasters and a graceful balustrade roof, this stylish structure was the first thoroughly fireproof station built after 1906. This firehouse is located in the heart of the Financial District. Engine Co. No. 2 was deactivated on July 1, 1970 by City budget cuts." (visit link)
