Default What is this?

Sorry, I have no idea where or even if I should post this here but.....

This item came out of an old building just off Market street in down town San Francisco during an complete rebuild of the building (we were doing).

I think it has something to do with a fire alarm system and telegraph to fire house??

The box it is is is cast iron and is about 10/12" by 13". Very heavy.
