The hot reads in town this week are: a New York City Fire Department Scrapbook kept during the years 1906 to 1909; several Happy Days story paper issues featuring stories of escapes and rescues from burning buildings; a host of new materials from the Independence Seaport’s Barry-Hayes collection, and finally a colored lithograph from Philadelphia printers Packard and Butler, showing the burning of St. Xavier’s Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. Enjoy your digital reading, but remember to keep your passions in check least they kindle a fire!
