Description

Fire Hall #15 ,is a two-bay, two-storey, wood-frame building constructed in 1913. at the corner of East 22nd Ave and Nootka Street in what was then the municipality of South Vancouver. It was one of four wood-frame Edwardian fire halls built from a stock plan developed by the City of Vancouver. Its first fire engine was a motorized Seagrave hose wagon; however, due to poor road conditions in the district, the vehicle often became stuck in the mud and was soon replaced with a horse-drawn wagon. As such, the fire hall was Vancouver’s last remaining hall to use horses.
