Dalmatians and fire stations have a long, glorious shared history. This dates back to the days when fire engines were really coaches drawn by horses. The loyal and brave Dalmatians would not only clear the path for fire "coach engines", but also help distract the horses who tended to be afraid of fire. Now Dalmatians remain a mascot for fire stations.
The lovely, quaint Kendall Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts celebrates both its heritage (it used to be a fire station, Engine 7, and has been lovingly restored); and the brave Dalmatians who were an integral part of its history. (Note the dalmatian themed bedroom slippers.) There's many a trinket all over the hotel, harking back to the evolution of brave fire services, including mini dalmatian statuettes, and mini fire truck models. There's also an eclectic collection of art all over. A weekend well spent indeed.
