At Big Cross School:
The city’s oldest
(both school and signal)

Staples and Third streets

A pagoda-style signal guards this intersection, where one of the city’s fine elemnentary schools is located. The school was originally constructed in 1912, renovated in 1928, 1949; expanded in 1957-58 and again in 1997-98.

The signal was orignally painted green, then painted yellow around 1960. It received a fresh coat of yellow paint in the 1980s. Photo taken 5 July 2002.

The control box for the signal. It is a Crouse-Hinds unit that dates from the mid-1970s.
                       

One signal is dedicated to providing just that—TWO LEFT TURNS!

An independent primary school with an equally independent signal.

Pole mounted signals, and more.
