AT&T "Bell and Lights" Civil Defense alert system

Mon Sep 18, 2023 5:46 pm

My friend Evan and I went to the Connections Museum up in Seattle this past weekend to visit for the first time. We were both flabbergasted at what we saw once we had completed the tour, that being both a console unit and a reciever for the AT&T Bell and Lights system that came from the seattle area. Better yet, they were both wired into the No. 1 crossbar switch that the museum has, and were fully operational! I couldn't resist taking a few videos of course, and Evan will have an even better one coming out soon. We soon will hopefully be getting even more info about this system. I cannot understate my excitement.

This reminds me of a weird multicolor light setup that was in the Macy's (formerly Dayton's) in downtown Minneapolis before it closed. There were a few of these lights on the ceilings (this one shown was on the top of an escalator) and I was never able to figure out what they were for. These have a green instead of white light but now I'm wondering if they could have been for a system like this.

I have an unhealthy obsession with mini sirens.
