Excellent picture and quote, Martina. Your fireplugs actually appear to have some personality.
Thank you very much! Sometimes I wonder what I would do if I would live in the US with all the different and much more anthropomorphic hydrants – stop photographing anything else? ;-)
It might be an advantage that above ground hydrants are a minority around here ;-)
Personality and complexity. This one has triple outlets with different diameters, some sort of skirt affair beneath. Most get along with much more simple designs.
And – not to forget – it is chained so it can’t run away!
Never thought about the skirt thing, though. Have to do some research …
I believe that, even in France, chaining a hydrant is at least a jail able offense!!!
