The Clerk's office found these in the basement.

The bottom picture is a detail.

Where are the locations?

I still think it looks like Hudson St. HFD history on the city's site mentions a Franklin House on Hudson St where Hudson Hose Co. 3 came into existence in 1890 and somewhere in my search, I saw an address (22) on a Hudson St building that I think had something to do with the HFD, but I can't find it now.

Spill the beans, Mike.

From: http://www.hackensack.org/content/6823/6833/7101/default.aspx

Alert Hose Co. # 2

Alert Hose Co. 2 was organized in a cigar store at 70 Main St. on March 21, 1883.  On May 9, 1893, the company purchased an up to date hose wagon built to order by J.J. Post Of Paterson.  On September 25, 1893 the wagon was formally turned over to the company.  This Company in 1910 had a chemical and hose wagon in their house to try it out before it was given to Union Hose Co. 4.  The Company was quartered on Mercer St. and, due to its location, responded to more alarms than any company in the city. These quarters were to become the first headquarters of the paid department. In 1896 they had 19 members. They were disbanded May 11, 1911 as their quarters became the first paid headquarters, with their members able to join the other volunteer companies.   This building later became police headquarters.

that would be it.  Holley Coal was across the street from the present day Fire HQ in what is now a parking lot.

Excellent.  Any other pictures of the Mercer St. HQ? Either for HPD or HFD?
