The Evolution of a Building

Recently a newspaper supplement called "New Life for an Old City: A Decade of Revitalization/Hudson, New York" came into my possession. Strangely, for such a historic document, it was undated, but it is possible to surmise that the decade in question was 1965 to 1975. It contained two pictures of the Washington Hose Company firehouse--one taken before 1965, when the firehouse was still surrounded by other historic buildings; the other taken after the firehouse had been restored as part of Urban Renewal. Those two pictures are shared below, followed by a picture of the firehouse as it appears today.
