Description: Postcard of a fire at Portland City Hall. The flames have spread through the building's upper floors and the neighboring building on the left. Icicles are visible on the side of the city hall and part of a smaller neighboring building on its left. People in brown coats are visible in the street, and long hoses are running along the ground. On the back of the postcard, a handwritten message says, "Excuse delay - but I have been unable to find any fire department cards. This was the nearest I could come to it. Would be pleased to send you other kinds of card views - buildings, etc. if you wish. Many thanks for card sent - Edna Griffin."
