Photo Challenge #333

I was sure that no one would know the answer to last week’s Photo Challenge.

I was sure wrong.

By now I should know not to underestimate “06880” readers’ powers of observation.

Or their knowledge of esoterica.

Andrew Colabella, Rich Stein, David Warburg, Celia Campbell-Mohn and Abby Tolan all knew that David Squires’ image showed the siren horn on the front of a fire truck. (Click here to see.)

John McCarthy knew that the truck belongs to the Greens Farms fire station.

Tomas Curwen, Brandon Malin and Wendy Cusick knew that too — and they identified it as a “Federal Q2B mechanical siren.”

Tomas — a Staples High School senior who hopes to become a firefighter — went one step further that that, and said it was “mounted on the bumper of Engine 5 at Greens Farms Station 5.”

Who knew?!

“0688o” readers, that’s who. You never cease to amaze me. My (figurative firefighter’s) hat is off to you.

Meanwhile, I’ll keep trying to stump you.

If you know where in Westport you’d see the photo below, click “Comments.”

I dare you.

    A famous actress living in Westport (I won’t mention names) built this wall. The stone wall is on Beachside in front of their home.

  6. Stone wall on Beachside Avenue, after passing GFA.

  7. Yup — it is the stone wall on Beachside Avenue, near Greens Farms Academy. And Seth: Why mum about the actress’ name?!

      I suppose I wanted to respect their privacy —- but I’m sure many of your readers already know who lives there.

    I would love to know who built the wall from a longtime westporter

    Beachside – just to the east of GFA.
