Ceremonial Speaking Trumpet, 1885

When volunteer firefighters began forming companies in the United States at the end of the 18th century, the need to better organize efforts to fight fires arose. Engineers and officers began using speaking trumpet to direct and amplify their voices in the chaos that accompanied a fire. This one was presented to Stanstead firefighters to thank them for their service to the town. Unknown donor.
