Corona Firefighters

This isn't related to BSP, but as an old BSP firefighter, I enjoy pictures of late 19th and early 20th century firefighters and their apparatus.  This picture was obtained on a recent visit to Corona, California.  This early Corona hose house was built in 1898.  The volunteer force was led by Chief Perle Glass sitting next to the driver in a bowler hat.  The historical marker pictured below is situated near the site of the hose house.
