Description: In this full-length studio portrait, the photographer Jacob F. Wieners, Jr., wears the uniform of the Eagle Hook & Ladder Company No.1. On a pedestal next to him stands a fire trumpet, which was used in the early days of fire-fighting to shout orders at the scene of a fire. This particular trumpet appears to be an elaborately decorated presentation model.
