The main kitchen, with the areas for banquet, room service, garde manger, butchery, all the coolers/walk-ins, the storage room, baking, pastry, and so on, is rather large, so I'll be doing an on-going amassing of it....maybe I'll even map it someday

queenmary.JPG (99865 bytes) I'm walking around the kitchen area, and I stumble on a room with several of these signs on it. It made me pause.
queenmary2.JPG (80998 bytes) I'm even more confused. I found this sign yesterday. I asked what it meant, and got no real answer.

One day a runner grabbed my knife and started to use it to open a pickle bucket (they come in 5 gallon buckets). After expressing my dismay, it was explained to this person that what they needed was the bucket key...which is the above instrument.
