Fire Horse

This fine head stands above the doorway to an old fire station on Hall Street off Springbank. A blue plaque informs us that this was a volunteer fire brigade formed to assist the regulars. Since it started in 1887 and disbanded in 1891 I get the feeling there weren't too many volunteers. The chap below is thought to be a captain of the brigade.

Here's one of the doorways.
