It’s a bit strange to find a diesel gas pump sitting in an alley in a residential city neighborhood.  It’s not something you see everyday for sure.  This one, however, belongs to the fine folks of Milwaukee Fire Department Station 27 – home of Engine 27 and Ladder Truck 5.  Situated near the Milwaukee River in the East Side neighborhood, I’m guessing the pump was added quite a while after the firehouse was built way back in 1903.

If you ever happen to be in the area, stop by, say hello, and thank the firefighters for their wonderful service to the neighborhood.
