Inscription.  This scene is the intersection of East Main Street and Hartford Avenue. For a time in the late 1930's Centerburg had only one traffic light which was on a pole in the middle of the street. (Now the center light of the three current lights). This was most likely the first traffic light in town which was needed to deal with the increased road travel. It was very unusual and many have remembered it fondly. The information on its base gave local directions and mileage for all four sides.
