Relief Efforts - Food Supply Station Rear of Armory
On July 27 the Boston Globe published several articles pertaining to the Salem fire. This image, found in a scrapbook, depicts many strewn boxes at the rear of the State Armory on Essex Street, which indicated the large amount of provisions distributed to the refugees. As shown to the left of the image, another article labeled the aftermath of the fire as a "holocaust.' The First Corps of Cadets, in charge of running the Armory, assisted with the Food Supply Station.
