Ox Roast, Independent Fire Company, Labor Day, 1910

Ox Roast, Independent Fire Company, Labor Day, 1910
"Ox Roast, Labor Day, 1910, Ind. Fire Co."

This rather dark real photo postcard shows a festive scene at a Labor Day celebration held in 1910 by "Ind. Fire Co." (Independent or Independence Fire Company, location unknown but probably somewhere in Pennsylvania). The "ox roast" likely referred to roast beef that was sliced and served in sandwiches.
