The old vulcan 30-a heat detector we got from a old local first bank in pinehurst nc

That’s actually a mechanical heat detector: weird that it would be in a commercial building like a bank though (unless it’s old enough to have something as equally old as a mechanical heat detector installed in it).

Oh thats so cool is this rare

Well this bank was built in 1902 so im not too surprised

I’d say it’s somewhat rare, yes.

Yeah: that was all anyone had in the way of automatic fire detection before the invention of the ionization smoke detector in the late 1960s & the invention of the photoelectric smoke detector in the early 1970s.

The bank was turned into a cafe

Oh? I assume that it had an up-to-date fire detection & alarm system installed accordingly.
