Station G, Washington Sq., Early 1900s
This station at 665 Washington St. is still active today as Fire Station No. 7. Shown is their Engine #2 steamer. When the station was opened in late 1899 the engine was relocated from the Devotion Engine House.

At the rear is John W. Manley, engineer, who also came over from the Devotion Engine House when this station opened. In 1906 he moved to the chemical fire station at 86 Monmouth St. where he remained for a number of years. The driver has been listed as “Fay” which is the name sometimes used by Michael J. Fahey, a driver of many years for the fire department. However, there are no listings of him at this station and this man does not match other photos of Michael Fahey.
