More Harrisburg, Pa...


Today’s two photos will finish up my week of Harrisburg, Pa. photographs. Remember if you click on the image it will get much larger and to make it easier for people not familiar with the city I used red arrows on the uptown shot to help you out. The first photograph is of the Harrisburg Transportation Center located in the downtown district. From here you can pick up a cab, train or bus for your trip in or out of the city. At the far left of the photo is Market Street and at the bottom center is Chestnut Street and the Mulberry Street Bridge.

The second photograph shows the uptown neighborhood that HFD Station #1 is in. I have attached two red arrows to help you out the one points to Station 1 home of Wagon 3, Tower 2 and the Captains, this is the station that holds the city together and keeps the citizens and visitors safe. The second arrow, two blocks back points to the Reily Hose Company #10. The Reily was built in 1899 and has been closed as an active fire station for years. Today it is home to the Pennsylvania National Fire Museum. You will notice the rail cars towards the bottom of the photo, years ago you could board the train in this area also, but those are days long gone.

I do have some more and will post a few more later. I will give them a break for now and will be returning to fire service photographs for next week.
