Govan Fire Station

The entrance to Govan Fire Station in Russell Street off Orkney Street, 1920s or 1930s.

The fire station was located at the rear of Govan Town Hall, which was built in Albert Street (subsequently renamed Orkney Street) in 1867 and contained all the council offices. The fire and police services remained in the old building when the new Town Hall opened in Summerstown Road in 1899. By 1905 the Govan brigade also operated from a sub-station at Plantation.
