Do you remember the Noon Whistle?
Did they have one in your town.
We had one in my town and still have
it as far as I know. It was set off by
the fire department. It was the same one
that they use to call the volunteer firemen
in to a fire. So many blast told what
part of town for them to head to. And
even after they had a paid crew, the
whistle still went off.
One town I use to live in.. didn't have
the noon whistle...they had something
better. It was the church bells. At noon,
the bells would start ringing for up to 3
minutes. It was a wonderful sound.
Gosh I miss that...
