01/10/11 75 W, 1 I - + 4 - 2 Raleigh Fire Hydrants


How many different fire hydrants can be found in Raleigh? Here's an exploration on the south side, as photographed on Sunday. Any hydrant experts out there, who can identify some or all? (See FireHydrant.org for reference material.) The oldest, shown on the lower-right, is a two-nipple hydrant that dates to 1939. We'll post these to the photo site a bit later. Maybe we'll get some identification on them. Click to enlarge:
 





Okay, I’ll step out there…here are my guesses:

Top row, 1st – Waterous
Top row, 2nd – Waterous
Top row, 3rd – Darling
Top row, 4th – ?
Top row, 5th – Darling
Bottom row, 1st – Mueller
Bottom row, 2nd – ?
Bottom row, 3rd – Clow
Bottom row, 4th – Matthews
Bottom row, 5th – Matthews

I also recall Raleigh having Kennedy hydrants, not pictured.

I might be wrong, but I believe the top row 4th is a Mueller and the Bottom First is an MH.

I think number 4 is a Muller, and I would not be surprised if number 9 and 10 are Woods.
