A beautiful 3-panel glass etching featuring an old 1920’s era fire engine departing the old Independent Hose Company (IHC) fire station in Frederick arrived at the Frederick County Fire/Rescue Museum and National Fire Heritage Center on South Seton Avenue by way of Emmitsburg Glass Company (EGC) personnel on Wednesday, March 28, 2018. The day before, EGC personnel had installed new window panels at the old IHC building at 12 West Church Street in Frederick.
The etching, created by renowned designer William N. Cochran of Frederick in 1988, is made of 3 panels with a total weight of 1,500 pounds (the largest of the 3 glass panels weighs in at a mere 900 lbs.). The owners of the building on West Church Street donated the large etching to the Museum. Measuring over 15 feet wide and over 8 feet high, the impressive display will require some time yet before being reassembled for all to see.
