Description

San Francisco Engine Co. 15 was located at 2114 California St. and this lithograph was published in the California WPA.

Marguerite Redman Dorgeloh uses the contrasting white facade of a Victorian era firehouse against a moody night sky and buildings shrouded in shadow -- perhaps to portray the all-hours vigilance of the firefighter. The beams of the engine’s headlights glow softly from within the garage, and the adjoining apartments’ windows are dark as San Francisco quietly sleeps under a bank of heavy fog. Dorgeloh often depicted evening and night time scenes of the city where she grew up.
