Greetings all,

I was wondering if anyone had any old photos of sirens being installed, especially thunderbolts.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't consider that an "old" photo, considering it is from 2011, about 20 years after Thunderbolts were discontinued. OP seems to be looking for vintage photos of when old sirens were originally installed by jurisdictions, and not by collectors at their homes. For Thunderbolts, this would be from 1952-early 1990s.

Cool photo! Perhaps the only photo of a ACA Hurricane being installed! Where is that again?
