Wissembourg Pompier (Firefighter) no. 8028 (1890s)


Another wonderful Wissembourg original celebrating Firefighters, "Jederzeit hilfsbereit" (Always ready to help). This image shows the brave fireman carrying a baby down a ladder to safety, as flames rage in the background. This unique stone lithograph was printed by the C. Burckardt printing company in Wissembourg well over a century ago, in the Alsatian region of France. The poster is part of a series featuring various German firemen. The printer's stamp is located in the bottom right, and is numbered 8028. For the firefighter in your life!
