NOTES ON THE TRUMPET : GUITAR NOTES FOR ONE
Notes On The Trumpet
Fire Station Museum, Laurel Street, Columbia South Carolina
NOTE: In Columbia SC, and presumably elsewhere (I don't know for sure), independent "fire stations" were in operation. The text on the placard in this display case (see below) refers to the "Independent Fire Company" in operation. There was at least one other (presumably, competing) fire company in town at this time.
"These handsomely decorated speaking trumpets were used by fire officials to direct fire ground operations into the early 1900's. During the burning of Columbia on February 17 of 1865, Federal troops intentionally destroyed the majority of fire equipmewnt and plundered much of its valuables. The speaking trumpet on the left was plundered and later pawned by a federal soldier in Washington, D.C. shortly after the occupation of Sherman's troops. Due to the owner of W. Smith and Company, William Smith, the trumpet was honorably returned on February 7, 1867. Records of the Independent Fire Company record Mr. Smith's "honest heart and great kindness" for their miraculous return. The Independent Fire Company on this date unanimously elected Mr. William Smith Esquire an honorary member of the Independent Fire Company because of this noble gesture."
Here he is! Fellow Wallflower diner
A note on this dude: So, on a recent trip to Vancouver my sister and I went to a restaurant and the waitress was preparing for the arrival of a large group (8-10 people) that had apparently phoned ahead. When people from the group started to appear, a guy walked in and I though, "Oh, *that* guy." Then I thought, "Hey, wait--WHAT guy?" I was thinking maybe I had seen him around, on the bus or something (I'm on the bus A LOT) but then I was like, "Dude, this is not my city. So how would I know him?" After a minute, I realized he was the dude in this photo. And I actually had this photo still on my camera and freaked out my sister by telling her to take a good look at the dude a couple tables away, then showing her this very photo on my camera. Awesome. Also, another member of that party was carrying this CBC bag that I have stared at on the CBC website and talked myself out of ordering about ten times because I have a MILLION bags and shouldn't spend $35 plus $14 shipping AND taxes on another one, no matter how much I love love love love LOVE it.
Anyway, no offense to homeboy here, but I'm really bummed that this is far and away my best photo from this show.
