A police officer reluctantly allows children to turn on a fire hydrant to keep cool, 1947, Chicago.

Bonus points for anyone who can identify the location based on the fire house in the second picture..

Update: Thanks to seajaybea for correctly identifying the fire house just east of the Water Tower on Chicago Ave. Not only does the building still exist but it would seem the fire hydrant does too!
