Fire hydrants are in the pavement there? That's unusual.
Most of them are in the ground in Australia too but I think the plates are smaller than this.
This is mo than wonderful. Makes me think I should look down more often. But I'm not going to see anything this old or this beautiful.
So much art in the metal of our streets.
For me that's a rare sight. Fire hydrants are above ground here.
A solid, well-embedded sign.
That's built to last, Gerald!
wow, i've never seen them in the ground like this...how do the dogs know where to potty?!
Is that the same as a manhole?
similar but not as big - a manhole has to be big enough for a man to get down - this is big enough only to allow access the hydrant below.
Old cast iron covers are a wonderful find. Tom The Backroads Traveller
