Manufactured by the Marbelite company in 1975, this pedestrian signal originally came from somewhere in the city of New York. Its kind (officially known by its manufacturer as the model LPS-20) first made its debut there in the mid 1960s and was in existence until the early 1980s.
At first, the standard lamps for this pedestrian signal in New York City were red and green ("DONT WALK" and "WALK" respectively). Then, in the mid 1970s, the city's D.O.T. made the transition from those to orange and white lamps. Personally, I prefer red and green lamps, which, as you could see in the picture above, is what my unit uses.
A great piece of New York City traffic control memorabilia.
