03/14/11 132 W, 2 I - + 9 - 2 Chief Engineer's Report of the Raleigh Fire Department, 1884

For your historical enjoyment, here's a scan of an 1884 annual report, excerpted from the Annual Report of the Mayor and Officers of the City of Raleigh, N.C. - Fiscal Year Ending April 30th, 1884. The document was printed by Edwards, Broughton & Co., using a steam-powered printing press. A bound version was photocopied at the North Carolina State Library and scanned at Blog Central.

There's an excerpt from the Mayor's personal report, a report from the committee of the Market House (where some apparatus was kept), and the report of the Chief Engineer of the Fire Department. The latter includes lists of equipment, fire calls, water sources, and expenditures. Read the PDF document (3.6M), which will soon be linked from Mike's history pages.
