Fire Hall – Edmonton Exhibition Grounds

This is a fire hall I doubt that very few people (living today) have ever seen. This fire hall was dedicated to the protection of the Edmonton Exhibition Grounds. Interestingly it was made of wood and right next to another wooden building that was (apparently) stuffed with fire works (see the map below). I am really not sure how useful it would have been if that building, one of the largest sources of risk on the grounds, had exploded…
