Central Fire Station on Beretania St. The Central Fire Station was designed by architect Charles Dickey and engineer John Young in the "moderne" style, with geometric Art Deco details and materials. It has decorative belts, lines of louvers and sleek, aluminum Art Deco garage doors -- a story and a half tall -- created by the California Artistic Metal and Wire Company of San Francisco. The building is five bays wide; the three garage bays occupy the middle spaces. The end bays contain windows of heavy, tinted plate glass.
In 1870, the tallest landmark in Honolulu was the bell tower of Central Fire Station, then located on Union Street. At night, a watchman would sit in the tower, ready to sound the alarm if he spotted a fire. Central Fire Station was later relocated to its present site at Beretania and Fort Streets.
