That "L" shaped one with 3 open ends is labeled as an Orphan.

Yes, I thought the same thing
Just a tidbit that everyone else probably knows, but if a house was burning down back in "the day" .... Can't tell ya which one, the bed was considered to be the one thing to try and save, hence fireman carrying "bed keys" to quickly disassemble bed frames.
     I'm pretty certain I didn't make that up, someone will correct me if I'm wrong!

Second photo, 2nd from the left looks like a common welders wrench, the small square hole for acetylene cylinder valve stem. In the 4th photo. lower left, the small double ended hex box wrench looks like what came with many old treadle sewing machines.
