The men of the Marion Hose and Steam Fire Engine Company, No. 10, of Reading, Pennsylvania, sponsored a trip, probably as a fundraiser, to Springfield, Massachusetts, where they dined on beef and turkey at the Hotel Gilmore on October 7, 1909.

This keepsake menu for the meal was printed in portrait orientation over a postcard of The Connecticut [River] at Springfield, Mass., Mt. Tom in the Distance, 1909 (see below for the original landscape version).
