Fire Hydrant Sign
Is that an old-style fire hydrant sign on the
nearest gable end? The modern versions of these signs in the UK are
yellow with a black 'H' containing two numbers:
- The top number indicates the diameter of
the water pipe.
- The lower number indicates the distance
of the fire hydrant in meters.
The old-style signs were purple and white.
