Engine House 24, Hook and Ladder #7
On May 17th, P4P went to Hook and Ladder #7 for a classic P4P art-in. This fire house, designed by E.B. Green, was build in 1893-94. Nancy Siegel did a bit of research and found the following...
"In the Fire Memoriam /city data site I found these memorials:
Jan. 12, 1894-Engine 24-driver Michael O'Brien
Apr. 25, 1894-Ladder 7-Firefighter Joseph Rittling
Dec. 23, 1896-Engine 24-Capt. Edward Duggan
Aug. 7, 1923-Engine 24-Firefighter Harrington Brand
Feb. 2, 1988-Engine 24-Lt. Michael Gerrie
The station closed in 2006 after being used as a "storage facility Technical rescue wood products and the spare Rescue rig" It was "heavily vandalized" at that time."
I don't have a lot of the artwork from artists yet, but here are the action images from the day. I brought my Jump Start students from Buffalo Arts Studio down to participate in the art-in and practice their 2 point perspective! Thank you to Steve Siegel for these images. Look for more as artists complete their work!
