Singerly Fire Company volunteers have been busy over the past several week rearranging displays of artifacts in the museum. On this Friday afternoon, these relics of many 19th century fights with the flames and smoke rested on the 1818 Hydraulion and the Rodgers Hand Pumper (came to Elkton in 1859). The top photo, shows two leather helmets that date from the Company’s earliest days, and a much earlier 19th century lantern. In the bottom photo, there is a fireman’s trumpet, used to shout commands at the scene of a fire. It was given to Elkton firefighters by the Washington Fire Company of Wilmington. And there’s a leather bucket.
