Xiaonanmen Fire Station (1909–2021?)

Next door to the Xiaonanmen Watchtower 小南门警钟楼 (1909) stands the old fire station, and while the watchtower is a protected heritage structure, the fire station is not, so it might get demolished.

Here it is, photographed more than a hundred years apart, c. 1910 and in 2020:

Address: 581 Zhonghua Road 中华路581号.

[More photos from November 2020...]
