Fire Department personnel and emergency vehicles line-up outside the department headquarters on February 1, 1950. The building was Burbank's original city hall, built in 1916 on the southwest corner of Olive Avenue and 3rd Street. After the new city hall opened across Olive in 1943 (visible in the background of the photo) it housed the Burbank Fire Department and was later home to a number of police department offices. The old building was razed in late 1959 to make way for a new City Hall Annex, part of the city's 10 Year Capital Improvement Program, according to the Los Angeles Times. A list of names on the back of the photo reads: "Left to Right: Harry Mock, R. Markham, B. Snyder, P. Nare, H. Lawson, L. Galente, W. Weaver, A. Wilkinson, H. Tolman, R. Gain, Katie Willeford, W. Short, W. Morgan, M. Danaby, W. Taylor".
