Labels above firemen’s water supply pipes indicating which one is on the left and which one is on the right on rue Tournefort. HEIGHT=450 WIDTH=738

Labels above firemen’s dry riser pipes helpfully indicating which one is on the left and which one is on the right at 41, rue Tournefort. I showed this picture to a fireman and he explained the purpose of these water pipes. Then I asked him if there are firemen who can’t tell the difference between left and right. He said “No, not really, no, not at all, after all…”
