Ayer, Mass., Erecting Fire Station
The town of Ayer, Mass., is building a fire and police station under an appropriation of the C.W.A. It is located on Washington Street, and is to be completed about May 1.
The building is built of brick with heavy hard pine framing and concrete foundations. It is a two-door house, accommodates three pieces of apparatus and has ten police cells. There is a bell in the cupola with provisions for a whistle blowing machine.
On the ground floor is the signal apparatus. On the second floor of the fire station is a common room to house a call department. Provisions have been made on the lot for a drill school and space was left for a garage for the police department cars.
Plans for the building were drawn by George Ernest Robinson, of Boston.
