Amsterdam Fire Fighting – Volunteer and Early Department Days
The Historic Amsterdam League is pleased to once again offer an original 12 month wall- size (11″ x 17″) calendar for the coming year, Amsterdam Icons 2021, the ninth in our calendar series. Amsterdam Icons 2021 looks at Amsterdam fire fighting in its volunteer company and early department days, when fire wagons were horse drawn, steam pumpers had names like “J.D. Serviss” and “E.D. Bronson”, and White, Federal, and Studebaker fire engines were stationed in satellite stations on neighborhood street corners. Filled with classic mostly B&W photos and illustrations documenting the men, equipment, and places that defended Amsterdam from fire from the late 19th through the mid 20th century, the latest Icons still contains all of the usual listings of dates, holidays, observances, and entertaining local facts and trivia you’ve come to expect.
Amsterdam Icons 2021 – available 12/10 from:
- The Local Peddler and Bakery – 175 Church Street, Amsterdam
- Walter Elwood Museum – 100 Church Street, Amsterdam
- Damiano’s Flowers – 2 Hewitt Street, Amsterdam
- The Historic Amsterdam League - by mail – see details below
Calendars will be on sale while supplies last – but don’t delay, some year’s Icons have sold out by New Year’s. Take a year long journey with HAL and along the way discover when to set your clocks ahead, when the Antlers Clubhouse burned, and enough local trivia to win a friendly bet or two.
