a past time. my maine backyard and beyond...
I'm always kind of envious of the American hydrants. Real sculptures. Ours are hidden underground,.
I had a summer job painting these guys. Chrome yellow bodies and reflective silver caps. I was an artiste.
Firefighters are indeed very brave.
Wow, that one is really old fashioned. I wonder why the word changed, as you noted. These people have always put their lives on the line for the rest of us. Maybe some think that firefighters sounds more military and therefore more honorable.
I must agree. Great shot too.
Looks like your hydrant is trying to push itself off the page.
Birdman,That was a scary time; the Lewis Lumber fire. Remember, mom had all our clothes down on the couch in the music room ready to evacuate. Probably the scariest time on Stevens Ave. for me as a kid. Sis in Lakeland
Well said Birdman!
