Jacob, I have one more inactive firehouse that I bet very few people know about. I have a 1910 era real photo postcard showing Engine Co. 49 at 47th & Marshfield. I know there was a newer house at 45th & Marshfield (inactive) listed as Truck Co. 33. The old frame Engine 49 building still stands at 4712 S. Marshfield. Here is a link to it.
In that link there is an option under the photo for historical photo. You can see what it looked like in 2000. The building has been haphazardly converted into an apartment building. Tax records indicate that the house was built in 1888.
I have tried to no avail to post photo's on this site. If I could I would post a scan of the vintage image.
