"The Pictorial History of the Houston Fire Department 1895 to 1980 started production in January of 2012 and went to press June 7, 2012. The books arrived at my house on August 10, 2012. 2000 copies were ordered, 763 were pre sold. My share of the books were 850 and my partner received the balance. By January 2013 all of my books were sold. By December 2014 the book was out of print.

Early this year I decided to do a reprint of this book because of the constant requests for copies. In February I ordered 300 copies and on March 7th I traveled to the printing company in Dallas to pick them up.

I am donating a third to the HFD groups for silent auctions and selling.

Sales of the rest of the books are going well and the books are going fast.

224 pages hard bound, Black and White, 9 1/2" by 11". It contains almost 450 HFD photos, many of them never seen before. The front of dust cover is a photo of HFD's Central Station, build in 1903 located 519 San Jacinto Street at Texas Avenue.

224 pages hard bound, Black and White, 9 1/2" by 11".
