All star contributor Allen was kind enough to send in yet another fantastic photo of early Seattle. This time around you can see the fireboat “Duwamish” at Firehouse No.

    Super awesome. I’ve been browsing the 1912 Seattle Baist maps at – this is the one for this area

    Incredible shot of Seattle’s working waterfront! When the Grand Trunk Pacific dock (to the south of fire station 5)burned in 1914, the “Duwamish” helped fight the fire. The fire claimed the life of a Seattle firefighter, and SFD also lost hose wagon #5.

    I believe this was the second firehouse on this spot. A photo of the first firehouse can be found in Paul Dorpat’s “494 More Glimpses of Historic Seattle.”
    The firehouse in this picture was built in 1902. It was replaced with a new firehouse in 1916. The 1916 firehouse had to be demolished in 1962 when the deteriorating pilings underneath the building had to be replaced. The 1963 firehouse is the one that still stands on this spot today.
