A place I visited two days ago. 

Fire hose tower in Julita Manor
In connection with the fire station the tube tower is located. It was built in 1936. It was used as a drying rack for fire hoses, which was made of cloth and in danger of rot if not dried properly after being used.

  4. How interesting, beautiful and well preserved ... and naturally the light would shine though because it has to have air circulation to dry the hoses. I don't believe we have such a thing in this country, at least not that I have seen. Now I wonder how our firemen dry their hoses ... hmmm. Love this, Monica. Beautiful pictures and I learned something new today :)

  5. Well that is something I never thought of. Interesting angles and light in the pics. Were they having an open house or is that tower always open... Seems like it could be a bit dangerous.
