I just love the sound a old whistle makes.
These are the whistles at the buckley show that Ray an I go to.

Enjoy!

Reminds me of being down by the river front when I was young. The forgotten sounds of men and their machines.

Neat!
I remember as a grade schooler....The dairy had a steam whistle that they would blow every weekday at 12 noon. The fire whistle would blow right after that on Mondays.

As juvenile delinquents, several of us would blow it at all times of the night too! Ah to be young again.....

You can never say, "If you've heard one whistle, you heard them all!" Such variety!
