Brooklyn Dodger pitcher Joe Black and Manager Chuck Dressen visit Engine 249/Ladder 113 firehouse close to Ebbets Field 1950s:

     


Engine 249/Ladder 113 firehouse:

     


Engine 280/Ladder 132 firehouse also located close to old Ebbets Field.

     



Ebbets Field (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebbets_Field) was located on Bedford Avenue in Flatbush.  It was home to the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1913 to 1957, but was also home to three professional football teams in the 1920s and the site of many important events.

  Re: Dodger photo: Mgr. Chuck Dreesen's left foot is mashing down hard on the clutch pedal of Ladder 113's 1937 Seagrave 85ft. tiller. Photo was taken around 1952-53 right after Joe Black's rookie season and before a 1948 Ward LaFrance tractor was placed under the 1937 Seagrave trailer.
     You can see Brooklyn C.O. in the top left of the 2nd aerial view photo of Ebbets Field.
