  • POP, during the Bicentennial DC school kids were encouraged to paint the fire hydrants like revolutionary war characters. For years in the late 70s you’d see these redcoats or george washingtons as we drove to the Zoo. This little guy looks Japanese to me.

  • Just FYI, the ‘maintenance required” notice could mean it needs to be repainted. There are probably requirements that hydrants need to be a uniform color.
