Wheeler Reflector Co. Radial Wave Fire Box Light

This was originally taken by Joe Maurath, Jr. (friend of mine) in late 2003. There are still scatterings of these red-lensed radial wave fire-box-location lights around Boston. Many on ornate scroll pipe streetlight arms. These may have been a specially made fixture on account of how the red plastic (orginally glass?) lens fit inside of the radial wave reflector?

My thought is maybe originally these had red lamps then the red plastic lens was added (looks like a cereal bowl! lol) We have a few scattered fire pull stations here in Rhode Island but no red indicacting lights and i don't know if they're still in service but i'm not going to risk trying one out lol.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

As you can see I like Radial Waves, see Brewstbl Gallerys. These are very Rare and Cool.
