Icebergs … on Preston Street


A few days ago, I wrote of a meteorite – made of Luigi-ite – being found on Preston.

Now, icebergs !

Icebergs float, but just barely. Most of their bulk is unseen underwater.

Who knew that fire hydrants had a similar tale? Shown here is a nice four-pack of hydrants, waiting for installation along Preston Street. Below the bright yellow tops, is a red pipe and way way down, is a valve point, to which a pipe runs to the water main.

I have made a point of looking for fire hydrants in a number of foreign lands. I never saw any. They seem to be a north american piece of streetscape furniture.
