Steam Heat

As mentioned yesterday, today starts the annual Fallen Firefighters memorial service in Emmitsburg, MD.  As a result of this service, our area is visited by a number of unique and beautiful engines from across the country.  I caught a glimpse of this one on my way home today, and stopped to take a shot.  Interesting enough this engine didn’t have that far to travel as it came up from Frederick.

United Steam Fire Engine Company established itself in 1847 and has a proud history with respect to its apparatus. The most famous was a steamer affectionately named “Lily of the Swamp.” It was a formidable task for the Company to purchase the steamer. Without real estate upon which to borrow funds and the treasury being bankrupt, the committee appointed to purchase the steamer called upon the community for support. Funds were raised in less than one year. The amount collected was $3,209.50 and the actual cost of the steamer was $3,167. October 14, 2011
