I like traffic lights...

Leon Betts

Another reference for my more mature readers. Monty Python's song 'I like traffic lights' was a tad repetitive, but amusing nonetheless. No idea what I'm talking about? Just Google it.

Anyway...I purchased these great vintage traffic lights at a collectibles fair in Brisbane on the weekend. My plan is to give them a fresh coat of black paint and wire them up so they flash. A perfect addition to the Ol' School Garage showroom.

I'm assuming they are old. But the only thing the seller could tell me is that they came out of a building which was used for aerobic classes (not much help). They certainly look old. I couldn't find any brand name, ID plate, lettering, etc to shed any light on their history.

So if there are any traffic light experts out there, I would appreciate any information you can share. The only hints I can give you is that the cases were originally yellow and the bulbs are screw in type.

Cheers Leon
