Dry Barrel Hydrant Rogers Ave Circa 1935


            Yellow signifies 12-16 inch diameter water main down below. This fire hydrant was made during the great depression. As a dry barrel hydrant its water main is below ground. You can see if you look very closely that this indeed was a yellow flanged hydrant,  but most of the paint had flaked away over time. This is located on Rogers Ave just North of Clark.
