Firemen Make Large Model
A fire house garden attracted much attention at Baltimore, Md. The garden consisted of a scale model of the Naval Academy at Annapolis. It was about thirty feet long and fifteen feet wide. The model was constructed by the members of Engine Nineteen at their own expense. An aerial photograph was used in the layout and it took one year to make the model.
Over six thousand persons viewed the garden Christmas day. About five thousand persons daily visited the fire house from Christmas to New Year’s day.
The visitors spent about an equal amount of time in looking at the apparatus in the station. It consists of a Mack pumper, recently equipped with pneumatic tires. Also an ambulance and the coupe of the 8th District Chief. The last two are 1936 Buicks.
