Drill and Hose-Drying Tower
A postcard featuring the drill and hose-drying tower, five stories high. Five firemen lean from the ladder attached to the exterior of the building, with two men standing on top of the building. Caption reads: "A hose drying tower was built onto Central Station in 1911. It was designed to double as a drill tower, as this pompier ladder demonstration well illustrates."
