POTD: The Colt Used To Do More Than Guns

    I learnt something new today. Professional¬†Adventurer and TFB contributor Claymore sent me this photo and wrote …

    Note I did not take the photo. It was taken by the friend of mine that goes with me on my adventures. Three of these were found in a very old building in Connecticut.

    Photo is of a COLT switch installed in an old building. Yes that Colt the firearms manufacturer. (see writing on the bottom edge for logo and address.)

    Apparently Colt was a big manufacturer of switches, fuses and fuss boxes under the Colt NOARC brand. I Google’d around and found these photos, mostly on ebay where there is a healthy trade in Colt memorabilia.
