Nothing is known about the company that produced this hydrant. However, the hydrant bears a striking resemblance to those that were produced in St. Louis, MO by the Kupferle Foundry. If you have any information about the Alaska hydrant, an old advertisement, old records at your water agency, etc., please E-mail us.
Shown here is the last remaining hydrant of its type in Tyler, TX.
Markings: 1888 Alaska Pat. Pending.
"The City of Tyler developed a water system in the early 1890's and this hydrant is located on a portion of the original system. The brick street in the background dates back to 1900." --- Gregory M. Morgan
