Here's a 1953 photo from a newspaper clipping of one of Cincinnati's Thunderbolts being tested for the first time. It was the old 1000T that is on top of Patheon in Reading, Ohio. I'm told that this was the first Thunderbolt installed in Cincinnati, OH.
That would be really amazing, if the USA still have these sirens, and not removed them. There is a picture of a TBOLT 1000 in New Orleans from the 60s, but I can not find it.

Shot somewhere around High Point, NC. I have no clue on the location, other than the roll being called "Lilly / Big Star".

Image comes courtesy of the High Point Historical Society.

That could either be High Point's Civil Defense System or might be Greensboro's. Going to absolutely have to look into this.

The only thing I know for sure is the photo is from the 80s. The blue sedan is a GM B body of the era, I'd be willing to bet a Chevrolet Impala or Caprice.

According to an article in the 90s, High Point had 16 sirens. Time to pull some mapping out in that area.

Here are some more!
Belleville MI, not a Denver siren. Possibly a CAM siren or Sterling siren. BelleVUE had Denver siren mounted on their water tower, however I have never been able to recover a photo.

Bump. Where did you get that Bellevue had a Denver?? You are thinking of Belleville. Bellevue has an Erick. Belleville had a Denver, but Bellevue never did. That sounds JUST like Belleville. Get your facts straight. Here is a quote from a OLD post here:

“The Denver siren in Belleville, Michigan, went to scrap when the water tower was taken down in 1991. This was a decision that was made by the city council, as the water tower was built in 1905 and was not structurally sound anymore. Nonetheless, it was supporting three large microwave dishes, antennas, and two large outdoor warning sirens until the very end.

Sadly, this list did not exist in 1991, or else I would have spread the word”
