Get Yourself Some Hudson History

Coming up in May or perhaps June, the Department of Public Works will be auctioning off unused equipment, including a couple of fairly new trolley buses. Although the average person may not have need for a trolley bus, the auction does include something that might appeal to many: fire alarm boxes. 
There are about thirty of these boxes which were once installed around town and used for summoning the fire department. Because of their potential appeal to collectors of firematic memorabilia and unusual objects and to people who just want to own a little piece of Hudson history, DPW Superintendent Rob Perry has decided to auction the boxes separately rather than as one lot.
