In the mid century, 4-way beacons were common for indicating dangerous intersections or to reinforce 4-way stops. Yellow indications facing arterial streets warned of vehicles entering that might not be clearly seen, and red indications naturally meant "stop."

This particular beacon came with all red indications, so it was likely installed over a 4-way stop intersection, signaling approaching motorists to make full stops.

Careful! Wasps sometimes build there nests inside.
Full size terminal block, same as with 3-color signals.
Testing on the bench after restoration.
Visors installed, ready to hang.
