  1. Notice the lanterns on the barrier. I miss those and the flares that looked like bombs. They were about the size of bowling balls with a small flame coming out of the top.

  2. The ones that were round were called smudge pots, highway torches, road flares, road torches and several other names. They burned kerosene and lasted 12-13 hours and were virtually impossible to extinguish except for putting metal cap on that hung on the side attached with a chain.
