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 yellow and red indications, so it was likely installed over a 2-way stop intersection, signaling approaching motorists to be cautious or to make full stops.

Careful! Wasps sometimes build there nests inside.
Full size terminal block, same as with 3-color signals.

As displayed in the collection with a "Joez Garage" electronic flash controller.
