We found these years ago in a dusty corner of our bulk plant. Dads eyes lit up! He told me to take these home & dont get rid of them. This was the mid 70s, couldnt see the big deal about these, he said these are stop light switchs for ?? cars. The ?? was because at that time old (1929-46) cars didnt mean much to me. Well, he was right about MANY things but he couldnt forsee the unbelievable amount of antique car part re-manufacturing, due to the popularity boom 10-15 yrs ago.Still, there neet countertop display items, but even google scratched its head when i tried to pull info. Marked: Handy stop-light switch pat. dec. 1924 mfg. by Chicago Electric Manufacturing Co. 2801-2819 s. Halstead St. Chicago Ill.
