Project Firebox 34

You don’t see many of this sort of Firebox anymore, which combined Police and Fire intercoms in a single unit. A humble narrator clearly remembers school assemblies (P.S. 208 on Avenue D) in which redoutable members of both services offered advice on how and when to appropriately use these fireboxes in terms of emergency.

One also recalls the “give a hoot, don’t pollute” stickers on garbage pails and being urged to turn off lights when leaving the room. Bellbottom corduroy pants also figure heavily into such memories.
