Fire alarm circuits appear on the short crossover crossarms atop this pole with an incandescent "double-bend" street light beneath. Lead-sheathed paired telephone cables terminated below the lowermost crossarm. The cable's pairs led to a round metal junction or terminal box right beneath the arm for subscriber drops.
