Chromatic Outlook (Post#52) – The Old Fire Station (York, WA)
Photos of the day are all about the Old Fire Station in York. This heritage building was formerly known as Council of Chambers which declared by previous governor of Western Australia, Gerald Smith. It was developed for municipal council meeting as they just used Oddfellow’s Hall (now Masonic Hall) and Mechanics Institute (now Town Hall). In 1911, the council moved to newly built Town Hall and this building sold to Mr. William Thomas Davies (the owner of Davies Building which I posted here). A great discovery about Mr. Davies was he sold the building to Fire Brigade without a profit, it was like a donation. Currently the Fire Brigade already move to its modern home in Henrietta Street. The building is now used as community centre and owned privately. These photos are part of Wheatbelt Region Tour October 2016.
