Dandenong Fire Station in Walker Street, Dandenong, early 1910's.

In this early 1910's photo, the quick build and almost cartoonist design of the old building stands out, Facing Walker street with Robinson street up the left and Mason street to the right, The present day location of the Walker street Gallery has a long history with the the local Fire Station. This building was moved in the 1930's to Bangholme,, to make way for the new/present building, and became the Bangholme Memorial Hall and is still there and being used for Dances to this day.

This building was replaced with the present building around 1930, sadly the present building has had many modifications leaving it almost unrecognizable. The Dandenong Fire Station moved to bigger premises at 120 Princes Hwy in 1986, last year they move again further up the highway into bigger premises.
