On The Air"

Sandwich Fire Tower off Route 130 in Sandwich.

Looking north towards Canal power plant

West towards Pave Paws

South towards Otis

East towards East Sandwich and Sandy Neck

Northeast - Cape Cod Bay.  Note all those houses in the woods.


Looking at a map of Otis



This is how a 'line' is determined.

The line is plotted on a map out from the tower.

Crossing two or more towers gives a close location of a fire.
Matching the old maps with the new maps and road names requires
knowledge of the area.
