1915 Exide Vintage Glass Battery (6) in Excellent Condition. I am 48 and have never came across one of these. We now have 2.

    These are very neat, I've seen some of these in use, The rail-road would power signal crossings in remote areas, as late as the 1970's. Thanks for sharing these and jogging my memory of my rail-roading days.

    In 1974, I was working as a janitor in the Pacific Bell building in Bakersfield CA. They had batteries like that for backup power for the phone system. They were about 3 feet long.
