East 2nd and East Oneida streets
This blinker is likely the sole surviving vintage signal in the City
of Oswego. Twenty-five years ago, this city and Fulton had many vintage
signals, but these have all but disappeared. One interesting aspect of
this is that this might have been the only non-spanwire mounted signal.
Now, most signals in this city are mounted on tubular masts, as are Fultons.
Another interesting aspect of this intersection: it sits right over an
unusued railroad tunnel (below). Railroad operations existed
in Oswego, and some of it was street running. This ended in 1976, though
some of the specialized signals used on the citys west side remained
in use through the early 1980s.
