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.”
“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.
