Help identify a mysterious piece of infrastructure in Los Angeles. What is this squat metal pole

This is on Colorado Blvd. in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of LA. I've seen another similar pole up the street on a sidewalk, and I imagine there are more of them that I haven't noticed. The area also
has a rusty old air raid siren up on a pole
, so I imagine this isn't a siren. Old fire department equipment? A vent?
I see this when walking our dog, and I'm just curious because I like local weirdness & local history. Educated guesses are welcome. Thanks!
