As seen around … the Quinn Fire Academy

This from Mike Lopina:

While on a mission to introduce my youngest son to the tastes of Manny’s Deli, we took a ride past the academy to see what was there. Not sure what’s going on with E116 having their front suction line off. Are they getting a new rig? E104 and E126 new rigs are in!

From Mike Lopina:

Here is a shot of the former quarters of Evanston Engine 23 at 2504 Green Bay Rd. Not sure when the Station was built but it closed in 1954 when Engine 25 relocated to the new firehouse at 2830 Central (from Station 21) & Engine 23 and Truck 23 relocated to the new firehouse at 1105 Central.

Thanks!
