Crouse Hinds Brass Plate

Guess what. It's not a traffic light for once. It's a Crouse Hinds Plate instead. No idea what this was from. I've asked around and heard a few suggestions. It's an engraved brass plate (engraved huh?) that is 3" x 6". I would assume it was mounted to some kind of box, probably a shipping... Continue Reading →

Harrington Seaberg #2

Another traffic light in the kitchen. Complete with magnetic letters on the fridge courtesy of my grandson. This signal pretty much fell into my lap. Someone contacted me through the website. Showed me a couple pictures of the light. I was figuring I'd have to make the trek to Eastern Massachusetts to get it, but... Continue Reading →

I contacted the seller, made arrangements to take a look at it (I already had my mind set that I was coming home with it. Trust me!) and we took... Continue Reading →

Tokheim Traffic Signal

Another new addition in March 2018 to the collection. This is a Tokheim Model 1200 Traffic Signal I acquired. The seller was in Cleveland, Ohio. I found out he purchased the light from an antique dealer in 1990 and has held onto it ever since. Tokheim signals were produced from 1926 onward. In 1938 this division... Continue Reading →

Crouse Hinds Art Deco Type D

One of my all-time favorites (so far) is a Crouse Hinds Type D Art Deco Signal. This dates from more than likely the early 1950's (which is older than me lol) although I'm not sure of a specific year. From what I can find, these were around $900 or so brand new. This was the... Continue Reading →
