At one time, there was Engine 91-2, a section section of Engine 91.  Also, I believe there was a communication unit (splicer) that operated out of that house, and possibly a fire marshal unit.

When the house was first opened in 1913 it held E91 and L43, and a few years later E91-2 (officially disbanded 1974).  Ladder 43 also moved out in 1974 into a new house with E53.  It has since then also housed Division 4 (1949-1956), Battalion 25 (1969-1989), and Salvage Unit 2 (1979-1991).   Now Engine 91's house is home to the engine and RAC1.

   BTW, that type of firehouse, had a solid wall dividing the engine and ladder, also E93/L45 and E264/E328/L134 firehouses are the almost identical. In fact, both E91/L43 and E93L/45 firehouses were opened on the same day, March 20, 1913. ;)

  Yes, but the three I mentioned are 3 bay firehouses built in 1913. ;)

I believe the 91's have mostly been retired and replaced by 94's.
