Ribbon for the National Hose Company No. 1 Tonawanda, NY

This off white ribbon carries a celluloid photograph of a young man. It is surrounded by a rosette with small red, white, and blue petals with stars and stipes. They appear to be tiny American flags.

 

It was made by the Edward H. Schlechter company of Allentown, PA. "Manufacturer of Ribbon, Metal, and Celluloid Badges & Buttons. We bought eight convention or parade ribbons made by this company at a Pennsylvania flea market many years ago.
