I am afraid that those Diaphones didn't sound like they were much worth saving, but the idea of scrapping them hurts.
I wonder how many installations slowly deteriorated like this one must have leading to their removal.
Nobody must have remembered how loud and crisp and useful they once were.

The video was the Farmingdale Village single diaphone which remains in operation today. The pictures of the dual set up was the neighboring Fire Department in South Farmingdale Long Island New York to which no one could compare back in their day.
