Quaint City, Quaint Signal

Doghouse-style traffic light in Hudson, New York

The city of Hudson has become known as a quaint, historic community. Perhaps the prevalance of old-style "doghouse" traffic lights hanging from span wires reinforces the image. Most traffic signals in Hudson (and there are surprisingly many for a city its size) are of this style.

This photo was taken near downtown Hudson in May 2010. Don't forget to check out the parking meter, too.
