Where's the Fire?

Every once in a while you come across something unusual in an ordinary place. Such was the case today. I went to an ordinary art/craft show and found something that really captured my attention...

Aren't they beautiful? Do you know what they are? They're beautifully restored antique fire extinguishers! I never would have thought to buy and polish up old fire extinguishers but I've got to admit I think they're really eye catching. As I stood staring at them I couldn't help but think that my grandfather probably had one just like these in his bakery back in the 1920s. If money was no object I would have bought one, but at $150 each the price was a little too rich for me. I still consider them quite a find though!
