Check this video out that popped up on YouTube. It is titled "Automobiles (1920s)". I am not sure why I watched it, but I am glad I did. At the 16 second mark you will see a response by DCFD as the they dump the house at 3522 Connecticut Avenue, NW. Out the door are Engine 28 (wagon & pumper), Truck 14 and Battalion Chief 5.
I have seen a fair amount of DCFD archival footage but this is one I don't recall viewing prior to today. I am sure some DCFD historian has spotted this in the past, but two of the experts I call on (one is older than dirt) are like me and hadn't seen it before. Enjoy.
