Photo of the Mill Valley Fire Department, 1948. Early firemen lined up their horses and cart in front of Town Hall, on the site of the present (1977) City Hall on Corte Madera Avenue. Included in the picture are Burt Roevear, William Ross, Fred Roemer, Frank Sherman, Dick Lenhardt and Frank Wier. The photo was taken in the early 1900's. Each month the livery stables alternated to funish a team for the Fire Dept. (Dowd's Fashion Stables owned by Charles James Dowd at 157 Throckmorton, Redwood Stables owned by Thomas Deffenbach on Thrrockmorton and Cascades Stable owned by Charles White on Miller Ave.) Later this system changed . If the fire bell rang, whoever was nearest to the fire house hitched his horses to the fire wagon and then he received $10 for the use of his horses. In 1909 the town purchased the Fire Department's own team of horses.
