Now moving into Firing Room B, which controlled rockets on Pad B, we see the classic late-1950s electrical design: incandescent lamps, switches, and knobs everywhere. This equipment was used for actual Jupiter rocket and ICBM test launches, although it has been slightly modified to light some of the lamps for display. (After seeing that stern warning sign, I did not dare try the LAMP TEST switch to see if other lights turned on as well.)
