09/24/11 126 W, 2 I - + 7 - 5 1933 State Fireman's Association Program

Our friends at the Salisbury Fire Department have shared this document, a Souvenir Program of the Forty-Sixth Annual Meeting of the North Carolina State Fireman's Association. The thing's mostly advertisements, which are entertaining unto themselves. Look for pictures of the association's band (!) and the associations fire truck (shown below). Wonder what became of that baby?

There's a history of Salisbury, portraits and biographies of association officers, and a list of members who died since the last convention. The program for that year's event included reel and truck races, with $1,000 in prizes. Read more about those events on Mike's history page.
