Fire Safety

Fire Department Connections

A classic beauty in hopkins. Not the prettiest feature on an architecturally pleasing building. Not pretty on any building for that matter. But pretty cool in ther own right. We typically are impressed by the pretty facads and beautiful lighting in our downtown areas and we overlook the simple functional features. Look around, and see what the mechanical and electrical engineers have designed. sometimes form over function and vice versa.
(Yes, this building is this putrid pinkish color as shown)

Somewhere in Minneapolis, if my memory serves me correctly, on Portland Ave. just south of Washington Ave. Not sure if this is operational any longer.
