Building History

Plans for this $28,000 design were announced in the American Architect in its 11/24/1909 issue. It was to be erected on 45th Street in San Francisco, CA.

Building Notes

The fire station for the San Francisco Fire Department's Engine #12 was located on a corner lot. A rectangular, two-floor building, its shorter facade had three arched doorways on floor one, and three paired, arched windows on floor two. All openings were edged by thick surrounds of terra cotta trim. The longer side had a consistent vocabulary of four arched doorways on the first floor, and four paired arched windows on the second. All of the windows had a roundel located above the pairs of arched openings, a familiar Italianate stylistic feature.

N. Clark and Sons, of 116 Natoma Street, produced the matte glazed terra cotta window and door trim and face brick of this Italianate fire station. (See “N. Clark and Sons Advertisement,” The Architect, vol. XII, no. 4, 10/1916, page opposite table of contents.)
