Iconography gone wrong? What is this sign?
Saturday, April 28, 2007
I took this picture 4 years ago in Montreal and I've always wondered what the logo is or what it actually means.
The sign was attached to the side of a building
, but I don't remember what type of establishment it was.
Does it mean anything? Maybe it's just a logo.
I always think of it as a table in roller blades. Or an upside down crab. Or...
It means stand-pipe. A place for fire fighters to force water into the building's fire suppression system.
Fire hose attachment sign.
I saw a bunch of these recently and wondered the exact same thing.
