“Collar City” Hudson Valley 40th Annual Firemens Convention badge from June 18-20 1929

I’m simultaneously searching for bits of history of the Terra Linda Fire Department (1958-1972) as well as the history of detachable collars of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, so I was amused to find this fun convention badge of a fire convention held in Troy, New York in 1929. The seal of the city of Troy, known then as “Collar City” has amended to it a dangling icon of a detachable collar.
