We had a chance to pop in to both the PUC's Water Treatment Plant (1230 Water Street) and the Peterborough Fire Station #3 (839 Clonsilla Avenue) during Saturday's Doors Open. One neat thing is that despite how modern both buildings were, they both contained a link to the past. The Fire Station has a mini museum of older firefighting equipment, including a pair of "Cover's Gas Tight Rubber Goggles" from the 1940s, and the water treatment plant has an older scale and testing equipment. Nice to see that Peterborough's past is not forgotten.
