Engine 16,  1887, Ahrens Mfg., Engine 3rd Class, 3-Horse hitch, Serial #511, 550-gpm

The Hose 16 rig (on the left) is unidentified
Both apparatus are displayed on the East side of Station 16, on Victoria St.  
No known image of the front of Station 16 exists. However, viewing the brickwork around the perimeter of the station, and then viewing the brickwork around former Station 17, (built the same year as Station 16) suggests the two stations were built from the same architechtural plans, and were probably identical to each other.
