Red and Yellow

This colorful box (electrical box? Breaker? Alarm?) sits on the corner of Park and Wyoming Streets, on the East side of Rediscoveries.

EDIT: Adding information from Bob Knutson

“The box is what they call a “safety switch”. Inside are fuses and an open blade disconnect. The idea is that when the handle is pulled down it opens a blade type switch and a latch moves so the cover can be opened. The fuses can be replaced safely because the disconnects give you a visual open. That only applies if the switch is in good operating condition. If this is where it is easily accessible, a lock should be installed so it can’t be operated or opened. Like Schildt’sy used to say, “That scares me an I ain’t scared of nuthin”.
