Hydrant Signs   1 comment

hydrant imperial units great haseley

Along with postboxes, a new obsession is what school kids hear are taught to call “street furniture.”  These include the bits of signage that direct emergency workers to, amongst other things, service valves and fire hydrants (such as the marker in this article).  Most hydrant markers you see are labeled with the pipe size in millimeters above the line and the distance in meters below; There are a few still around with Imperial measures (unless fires are to be put out with a 3mm water service located 22 meters away–enormous pressure would be needed!).
