printed paper wraps,48 pages : portraits , the Salvage Corps and Fire Police was organized in 1882 ..previously known as Fire Policemen and established in 1850. The "Bg Fire" (June, 1877) which devastated the city, demonstrated the need of some sort of protective body to assume charge of property salvaged from burning buildings, to protect the buildings themselves from unauthorized entry to facillitate the movement and the work of the fire fighters, and maintain order among the spectators. This organization was born as a result of that disaster. The organization chose to commemorate their 65 th anniversary by presenting this operetta. The history of the organization is related in the pages of this publication with list of members and former members and a 3 pp listing of Notable Saint John fires.
