I have no idea what this is, or was.

  1. Maybe something for a firehose?

    • Maybe. The oval part was about two feet tall. I wonder what plugged into the electrical outlet.

      • Hi Linda, after some googling around I withdraw my assumption about the firehose cabinet… I have no idea what this is 🙂

        • Thanks for “googling around,” Peter. Did you read George’s guess, below? He could be right, but as he says later, “When you’re guessing in the dark nearly anything fits.” We may never know the truth . . .

    Just a guess, but perhaps the base of a flue on the outside of the building for releasing steam from the radiator system, or from some industrial process. Steam enters from the small pipe on the left, and a large galvanized pipe fit over the oval? The outlet…dunno. If the steam idea were correct, maybe power for a mechanism for control/opening/closing?

    • Thanks for weighing in on this, George. I’ve gone back and looked at the photos I took about the same time. I think the other photos—one of which will be in tomorrow’s post—may be of a building related to the power (electric) company. Could that fit with your steam idea?

        When you’re guessing in the dark nearly anything fits…whatever it is, it is cool as an image
