Built in 1905 in an Amsterdam style, this fire station is still in use on Queen St E in the east end Toronto. The clock tower was added a few years later. It bears the name Station #17, which was changed to #227 after amalgamation in 1998, but is commonly known as the Kew Beach Fire Station for it’s location near Kew Beach.

  1. Oh, I like that a lot – a modernized version of a very classic look. And I love that the clocks work! Or are at least keeping the same incorrect time šŸ™‚

  2. I always liked that station. šŸ™‚

  3. Nice find. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That’s the way a fire station SHOULD look!
