Ruby Tuesday 2 is back, and we look for rubies in small or large doses, and even in different eras...Patti and I were in a new attraction in our small (19,000) city, the Ansonia Fire Museum built as part of an old and now restored school. Though not open to the public yet, we were on an informal tour of the great displays of trucks and firefighter gear.
This picture jumped at me - a late 19th century horse-drawn fire wagon in the foreground from Webster Hose Company. The red sits all over this classic apparatus. Behind is something completely different in era - a modern fire suppression system. The differences from horse-drawn to computerized is cool, the way once good enough then to state of the art now I find intriguing. With plenty of red to capture our attention! See more ruby at RT2!
