Title

Newark Firemen’s Monument

Description

A figure of a mustached fireman, dressed in a fireman's uniform consisting of a knee-length buttoned and belted coat, and a helmet, stands holding a fire trumpet to his side with his proper left hand. He points upward with his proper right arm. The figure is placed atop a tall multitiered base whose lower section is decorated with four dado panels each ornamented with a medallion. The medallions on three of the sides feature a distinctive fire vehicle, while the fourth features an inscription with a sprig of oak leaves and garland leaves. The central section of the pedestal is decorated with inscribed shields on two of its sides. Above the central section is tall square column broken only by a beaded astragal at its lower part and surmounted by an elaborate acanthus capital and topped with a tapered pedestal supporting the figure.
