AFAIK the Germans are guilty again - and I plea myself for not-guilty. ;-)
and their history)
And yes - pond does not really match a hydrant 'type' - the hydrant type
there may be still a 'pillar' or an 'underground', less a 'wall'.
Is it possible, that in UK/US the 'pillar' type is the norm and the
'underground' type is not wide spreaded?
At least the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_hydrant uses the term
'post- or pillar-type fire hydrant'
- but I do not know who wrote that.
At least there is a desire to distinguish between 'pillar' (or synonym)
vice 'underground' vice 'wall'.
