In this exhibit we present a souvenir book published for the 29th Annual Convention of the Fireman’s Association of the State of Pennsylvania held in Shamokin from October 5th – 9th, 1908.
This event drew leaders, dignitaries, fellow firemen and visitors from all over the state for the multi-day event. The city of Shamokin was decorated for the event as participants enjoyed balls, parades, entertainment and various session at the G.A.R. Opera House.
In this souvenir book you will not only find some great photographs of state and local fire leaders but also various historical write-ups. It’s also interesting to note the various political advertisements located throughout as the country was entering into a Congressional election at the time.
A big “Thank You” to Suzanne Cesari for sharing this incredible book with us.
