Greatest Fire Alarm Conversion in the City

IMG_6644, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

This is one of those old fire alarm pull boxes that has been converted into a sculpture. I’ve seen many of these alarm boxes converted into paintings but this is the first sculpture I’ve seen. This one is located in Mt. Pleasant and apparently is showing some troops being taken to the old Mt. Pleasant Hospital. Really an amazing conversion, no? Check out another picture after the jump.
