Callan Park Fire Hydrant
Callan Park is a large area of parkland that goes right down to the harbour. It is dotted with buildings, most of which are not in use. It was once Callan Park Hospital for the Insane. It has only been closed since 2008. Fortunately there is a very active group of local residents trying to keep the developers out.
To one side along the main road, there is some sort of emergency services base, where ambulances and fire engines are parked. All along the very quiet side street, there is a collection of old fire hydrants. I plan to draw them all.
I started a book of pipes nearly a year ago, and now it has a new drawing in it.
