Former Fire Station No. 22Former Fire Station No. 22
There is little info about this station beyond that it “was equipped with one 1939 Seagrave pumper truck with a 750-gallon capacity.”
This station was fixed up under a CWA Birmingham Public Buildings 37-C-715 project. These were designated Class “A”, “those needing general minor repairs, having sufficient sound value left in them to justify a thorough repairing, on which buildings was included painting inside and outside where needed, general carpentry repairs, including doors, windows and repairs to floors, or new floors; general repairs to masonry work and plaster or stucco, repairs to roof and sheet metal work, or new roof and sheet metal work installed. Plumbing, heating and wiring were put in good state of repair, and all minor changes such as moving partitions, or relocation of doors or windows were made. 23 fire stations in Birmingham were included in this CWA project.” 4 weeks was the estimated time for completion.
The building appears to have been used as a private residence or workshop according to the street view.
