Ludlow Valve Mfg. Co. - Troy, NY
List 90 and List 90-0

  List 90
The List 90 has a unique octagonal barrel and nozzle caps. As documented in an advertisement from the 1930s, it was originally called the Ludlow Diamond self-illuminating Fire Hydrant. It has a two piece barrel with a conventional bolted flange joint. It later evolved into the List 90-0 model shown in the next group below. It was produced in at least 3 sizes from the early 1930's to the mid-1960's. Only the later hydrants are dated. Here is the first page of the List 90 design patent which was filed by the inventor on January 29, 1932.

  • List 90 models, style #1 embossing. Made from 1931--1940, all of these first list 90 hydrants have "patents pending" embossed on the front and rear of the barrel and are not dated.
