Description:
Black and white photograph of the old fire station on 10 Queen Street with an ambulance (Chevrolet) in front of the building. The photo was taken from the other side of the street. The fire hall is located between two stores: Jim Connolly's store at corner King and Queen Streets (on left) and Jerauld Librock's store with English china (on right).
The third fire hall was built in 1910 and the fire department moved from the Court House to a new location in 1911. In 1964, the firemen renovated Green's Livery Stable on King Street and moved for the fourth time. The building on 10 Queen Street was destroyed by the fire in 2009.

Notes:
"In 1948 the townspeople collected donations to purchase an ambulance. This service ran until 1980 when the Ontario Health Department took it over."
