Apologies for the mediocre photo, but while on a trip in Spain, I spotted this thing on a rooftop that looks like a rather crude looking siren. I am positive that it isn't a chimney or anything like that since not only I could make out what appeared to be a chopper rotor with visible port holes, but the siren itself is mounted on a pedestal that is offset to the side with no tube under the base. If it is a siren after all, I speculate it dates back to the Spanish Civil War. I have no idea if it's active of course or if it's just a relic of the past. Curious to see if anyone could identify it though.

Don’t those have a hat over them like the E57s?

It's not a DS977 at all. This could well be a "La Electrica" siren from the civil war.

I’ve seen this siren before. I’m in Spain right now, where abouts were you when you saw this? And also, please provide me with the Google Maps address so I can get there. Thanks.

Depends if you want me to find it. ^
