|At St. John Avenue
East of Beethoven Street, this old signal shares a timer with the modern
4-way signal situated at the intersection with Chestnut Street, one block

had an auxiliary light on the bottom at one time, because one of the streets
is one-way; facing motorists had left and right green arrows as a result.

This signal, manufactured by Crouse Hinds 50-60 years ago, has remained
intact since it was first installed. Homes here were mostly built around
1900 or so; two blocks or so to the west, the homes are substantially
newer, having been constructed in the 1940s through to 1960. View

This signal unit, which stands by the stadium, is suspended by an original
old pole (where the control box is located) and from a 1960s-vintage pole,
located on the same corner as the main office of the U.S. Postal Service.
I do not know who manufactured this unit; it looks like a Crouse-Hinds
unit, but the details are definitely different. Incidentally, this signal
is on a flashing cycle late at night, along with many other
