The opening of a new fire station in the eighteenth ward of Chicago was officially observed by a parade in which several thousand children participated and which was headed by Mayor William Thompson and his retinue.

The new station houses Engine Co. No. 129 and Truck No. 50. News reel photographers recorded the official opening.

The West Auburn Business Men’s Association presented the firemen with a radio set and a complete kitchen outfit. Following the ceremonies, city and fire department heads attended a luncheon arranged by the district.
