Weathervane Wednesday ~ Above a former fire station

It's Weathervane Wednesday!

I post a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane is from a reader, and it was photographed in Maine

Do you know the location of weathervane post #291?  Scroll down to find the answer.

Today's weather vane was photographed by genealogy blogger Thomas Tufts in Kennebunkport, Maine.  This weathervane of a two dimensional fire fighter is located at the Landmark Gallery, which was a former fire station.   This is a great contribution by Tom, who is a former firefighter, and who volunteers at the Firefighting Museum in Exeter, New Hampshire. 

The weather vane at the Old Fire House features a very tall pole.  Perhaps this is to catch the ocean breeze?  Or perhaps so that the wind direction can be seen by sailors in the nearby harbor?
