I didn't see the earlier post.
2929 Comb for some tough coarse fibrous material. (hemp?)
2931 Beehive boxes for an environment where it is important to assure
no tampering with the hives???
2932 Horn. Steam foghorn? Siren?
2933 Map route measuring device.
I have one of these, in cheap plastic.
The little wheel at the lower right is geared to a full-face dial
indicator on the other side.
You roll it along a route on a map and read total distance.
2934 Pieces of pretty-much-standard chain conveyor belt. What is
unusual about these?

It's weird, things like that you should be able to "pick up anywhere"
but I've never seen a catalog where they list things like that. You
used to get the various twist and link chains and sprockets with
Erector Sets and would be useful for many Rube Goldberg-ing projects.

Ok I know 2934 looks like the belt conveyor for an industrial washing
we had one at an old job and was used for washing machined metal parts.

I thought, "Of course!"
I'd expect fireworks boxes to have rain-shedding roofs. I'd expect them
to have air circulation below to keep the insides dry. By the look of
the door, they seem to be simple plywood enclosures. White plywood
boxes of fireworks surrounded by a chain link fence on an open field
would invite mischief by vandals with firearms.
It's peculiar that the numbers are on the opposite side from the doors,
and they're too small to read from across the field. The door seems to
have a handle on the inside. Why would somebody want to go in and shut
The pole appears to be about 6" in diameter and 25' high. Why would it
have been erected?
Display fireworks must be stored in a minimum of a Type 4 magazine.
Plywood boxes don't even come close to the required metal or masonry
construction required for a Type 4. Consumer fireworks require no kind
of magazine at all, and would normally just be stored in a locked
That pole looks just like the flagpole in front of an office building a
block from here. I know where it is! It's a defunct military base.
Some soldiers would try to be indoors during colors so they wouldn't
have to stop and stand there saluting. Evening colors could catch them
by surprise because it happened at a different time every day. Those
boxes were built for such emergencies. Beetle Bailey could jump in and
close the door so he wouldn't have to salute. It would be a breach of
etiquette for an E-1 to jump in on top of an E-6. So they're marked, 1-6.
