I’m pretty sure that ‘Spkr’ does not mean ‘speaker’.
These hydrants, water meters and standpipes serve two potential fire venues, the street and the parking lot. I wonder if this arrangement was planned. Other photographic captures are found in the following posts: Fire Plugs, Fireplugs, the Beginning, Shiny Standpipe, What Luck!, Colorful Fireplugs, Fire Hydrant, From the Top.
I have trouble resisting shiny things. This bright red fire hydrant is located between my house and the Post Office. The sun caught it just right and I could not just walk by without snapping it. I’ve lost track of the number of photographs in my fireplug (also known as hydrant or standpipe) series. Other […]

I’m always on the lookout for fire suppression equipment. Today was a bonanza. I found a fireplug AND a standpipe right next to each other. The fire department doesn’t have to go far to hook up.

I have a series of photographs of fireplugs, also known as fire hydrants or standpipes. (Fire Plugs, Fireplugs, the Beginning, Shiny Standpipe, What Luck!) This is one outside a mall in Burbank, California USA.

I have an extensive series of photographs and drawings of fire hydrants and other water distribution systems. Here are some of my posts featuring fire plugs and standpipes: Fireplugs, the Beginning, What Luck!, […]
