Elegant Fire Hydrant Uptown, Circa. 1991 Chicago, IL
The fire hydrant is a lovely metaphor. In my long love affair with the fire plug this one is one of my favorites. I found it not far from my home in Chicago. The Chicago Fire Department has removed all of the beautifull hydrants and replaced them with the standard two armed variety which in its own way adds a new layer of metaphor but is not near as pretty.
