i couldnt find the site
Ardoyne Fire Brigade Station was cited where the Oldpark road joined the Crumlin road just above on the west side nowdays and this existed back in time is Twadell Avenue.   The first big building above it, is the Ardoyne Ambulance Station, the fire station could have been demolished within its precincts or have been demolished.. the next road off above it, is still the original Mountainview Park   
Use goggle first as is  then try PRONI historical maps https://apps.spatialni.gov.uk/EduSocial/PRONIApplication/index.html
click on layers and tick OSNI Historical Fourth Edition 1905-1957
where Ardoyne Fire Brigade Station is clearly marked,  back in 1905 it faced Ardoyne Lodge the view westwards was Divis mountain. it was very close to the Ardoyne tram depot, the view eastwards was the shipbuilding part of belfast

My Great-great-grandfather, Thomas Elder, was a brother to James Elder (1848-1911). Thomas Elder also married in Scotland. After the death of his first wife, he married Hannah Hunter on 7 November 1871 (Glasgow, Scotland). The marriage certificate records Thomas Elder and Rebecca Perry as Thomas' parents.
