glenfield and kennedy

Thomas Kennedy Senior was the founder of Glenfield and Kennedy and inventor of the world's first water meter.  Pumps, water-main cleaners, water-level indicators, basically anything to do with water this company was at the forefront.There are a few of these hydrants around town.  The cast of a lion head is an interesting addition to the hydrant.
