Last Fire Box

This may be the last box like this in town. There were hundreds of them on posts, mounted around town. This own is probably not functional, as the cut wires seem to be dangling to the left. This one is unusual in that it is mounted on a building, when most of them were on posts on the sidewalk.

There is a fire box that was turned into a lamp in my supervisor's office here in Cincinnati.

I've seen them around for sale here and there. The fancier ones with a decorative post go for quite a bit of money.

I have two of those in my garage that I got back in the 80's from a sale the city had back then.
