These little boxes are a great bit of social history, they were stationed outdoors in neighbourhoods, used for notifying a fire department of a fire before telephones were common place.

When the box is triggered, a spring-loaded wheel spins and taps out a signal to the fire alarm telegraph wire, indicating the box number. The receiver at the fire station would then match the number of the box to the neighbourhood and send a team of firefighters out.
