1940's Econolite Traffic Signal
December of 2013, we hitched up our 5th wheel and drove to Jackson, California, for a little camping trip with a bunch of friends and while there we went antiquing. Michael found this old traffic light hidden away in an upstairs corner in an antique shop with creaky old wooden floorboards. The lady said she thought it was from the 1940's, possibly WWII era. I think this is one of those things Michael just had to have so we briefly discussed some options as to what to do with it before purchasing. The most basic question was whether we should we make a stand for it or a box to frame and hang it on the wall. We decided to do the latter and after a whole year of storing it we finally got to work on it just before Christmas.
