[Pair of Firemen]
25 x 33½ inches
Chromolithographic posters by C. Burckardt, published in Weissenburg in the southern region of Alsace, circa 1880.
Two posters of a German fireman in uniform, probably recruitment posters for this volunteer service. The first shows him standing above a fire, hose in hand, with the caption 'If help is needed, we are always ready to extinguish the fire and to help'; the second shows him with a cart and implements, holding a bugle, 'In honour of God, in defence of your neighbour!'.
