This antique fireman helmet with the high eagle leather front was from
the Valatie,New York Fire Department.It has some New York history behind
it as it belonged to Harry Smith who was the founder of the Valatie Rescue
Squad in 1933 and a former mayor.The helmet which was made by Cairns is
metal and has the liner.As you can see by the leather shield it has seen
some fire heat which only adds to its appeal and would be a great addition
to a fire related or New York collection.
