Muster at World’s Fair

Muster at World’s Fair

The New England States Veteran Fireman’s League is promoting plans for a hand engine contest or muster to be held at the New York World’s Fair in 1939, and much interest is being aroused. There are a number of old hand tubs that have been maintained in first class condition and can be put in running order on short notice.

It is believed that Massachusetts, Maine, and Rhode Island can be represented by as many as a half dozen hand tubs each, with New England entries also probable from New Hampshire, Vermont, and Connecticut. ExChief John F. Cutter, of Newburyport, Mass., Secretary of the league, would like to hear from those interested in the plans for a muster at the World’s Fair.
