Inside Fire Station 311
Fire Station 311 at 20 Balmoral Avenue was one of two on on the Doors Open 2011 list. As architecturally interesting as the structure is â it's variously labelled as an example Romanesque Revival, Arts & Crafts, and/or Queen Anne style â the real fun is getting to see the firetruck and the firefighters' gear waiting to be put into action. Alas, we weren't allowed to take a slide down the pole, but it was still pretty cool to check out the interior of a station for more than the standard few seconds you get when they're parking the trucks.
