1906 with Volunteer Fire Department in action, could be a drill.
This is not 1934 nor City Sash & Door. Car tracks were double by 1921. Left Hand corner of CS&D stood after fire. This is prior 1920. Sorry. Also the old fire cart and bell on High pole NE corner of Hudson St. So this was probably 1912. Seattle fire dept. Horse drawn Hillman Rig attended 1934 fire.
