Max Brewer Bridge

Orlando Street Scene - Corner of Orange Avenue & Central Avenue May 1926


Orlando Street Scene (28 k)


Traffic control towers served as a bridge between the times when police officers directed traffic while standing in the roadway and when automatically controlled signals were installed. The "crow's nest" elevated the officer above traffic so he would have a clear view of traffic in all directions while he manipulated the semaphores or colored lights.
