These two 4-way beacons were retired to the junk pile, and I was lucky enough to stumble upon them before they were recycled. According to the members of Signalfan's Club, this signal is from the 1930s. There are no "Eagle" logos on the light, but it looks very similar to another collector's beacon.

See a (rather poor quality) photo of these traffic lights when they were still in operation.

These two 8" 2-way Econolite clusters were hung on either side of an Econolite 4-Way cluster; the 4-way was centered in the middle of the intersection, with a 2-way on both sides.

These 30" x 36" plastic panels are illuminated by fluorescent tubes. The aluminum casing is either mounted to a post with arms on the top and bottom of the metal frame, or hung from overhead span wires.

This is a signal version of the "School - Speed Limit 20" signs that are common today, many of which are also paired with yellow beacons, but separate from the sign. Wink-o-Matic's signal and sign is one unit. The 8-inch lights are attached to a control box in the back, to which the sign is affixed. The box houses a timer dial that controls the signal's hours of operation.

This signal fell to the ground after a car ran into it, and impact bent the hoods out of shape. Other than that, the signal is in good shape.
