ARTIFACT: This is a wonderful 1870's Fireman's Leather Parade Belt from the Torrent Engine Company of Fisherville, New Hampshire. Fisherville, NH became Penacook NH in 1883, and is still a Village, but it lies within the boundaries of the State Capital, the City of Concord. The leather parade belt is black, white, and red and the front reads: "FISHERVILLE N H" and the reverse reads: "TORRENT". The belt was made by Boston saddler, James Cogan.

One can find history on the Torrent Engine Company of Fisherville / Penacook going back to the original purchase of the Engine in 1844. Some time in the 1880s the original Hand Tub was replaced by a Steam Engine. 

This is a wonderful old piece of New Hampshire Fire Fighting History, and may be the only one still in existence. 

VINTAGE: Circa 1870's.

SIZE: Approximately 44" in length x 2" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Multi-piece sewn leather, with nickeled brass rivets, and a steel buckle.

ATTACHMENT: Leather strap and buckle.


ITEM NOTES: This is from a New Hampshire fire and rescue collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay-C06/12/19 VAHHX14 LCGEX2/15 SLCDEX7/16 TLEGEX07/22/22

CONDITION: 6+ (Fine - Very Fine): Belt has seen wear, leather is delicate, some areas of separation and loss have occurred. A section of the letter 'R' in Torrent and the letter 'E' in Fisherville are missing. There is an old repair to a split in the belt.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
