Downtown fire - 1904

Thanks for Lowell Firefighting and Michelle for linking to this excellent post on a fire at
the O’Donnell and Gilbride Department Store one January night over 100 years ago:


It appears that Forgotten New England is doing a series of posts on fires here in Lowell.

  1. Thanks for the mention, Corey. I'm glad you enjoyed the post. One of my ancestors was a fireman in the Lowell Fire Department (at the Lawrence Street Station); so, I've enjoyed learning more about what his life was like. It's also been great to learn the history behind some of those buildings downtown.
