I was interested to learn of the practice in Montreal, and perhaps elsewhere in Canada, of combining police stations and fire stations in a single building.
This is former Police and Firs Station No 10, now just Fire Station No 25. It was designed by Harold Edgar Shorey and Samuel Douglas Richie.
A frieze above the Police Station door depicts city buildings in one section and shipping activity it two others.
The building was constructed in 1931 and won first prize in the public building category from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada the same year.
