A Simple, Graceful Emblem

Weather vanes are everywhere, and they come in a variety of designs.
Among such are the gilded cannon over the armory, the hook-and-ladder
over the headquarters of the fire brigade, and the trumpery motorcar
over our neighbor’s garage. When stables flourished, the simple gilded
horse was a graceful emblem, too often spoiled by the addition of a
buggy or sulky.
