What is the top diameter of this post? It looks 48mm in stead of 60 or 76mm. The gap is big.

Interesting how many CFL and fluorescent fixtures you have in the Netherlands. In the US they are just not popular to use for streetlighting (only for a short while in the 50's, but you won't find ANY of those old fixtures left). I think in the US there has been this concept that more lumens=less crime, and so we have 200w "energy efficent" HPS fixtures in residential neighborhoods where 100w mercury or CFL would work just fine. I also prefer many of the modern designs of European fixtures rather than the "retro" looks of modern U.S. fixtures that are trying to imitate gas lights & coach lights.

I'm lampin...

Yep. Here in the Netherlands high wattages are not used in residential areas. The highest wattages was the 150 watt HPS and 250 MV for mainroads through the residential areas. All other streets have lower wattages. In the past 80 and 125 watt MV or 2 x20 or 2 x 40 watt fluoresents, later due to energy crisis in the 70s 70 and 50 watt HPS and 18 to 55 watt LPS and in the 90ties the CFL lamps apear in wattages used in streetlighs from 24 to 55 watt.

Yep about the style of streetlights in residential street i asked a few years ago on a Canadaen board about streetlighting why are so less modern (posttop) designs in North America. One says that is due to the style of architecture in residential street, which are also copies and imitation of old styles. People do not accept modern looking streetlights there so they use those imitaition acorns and coach lights. Most of the architecture in residential areas is in the Netherlands are of the modern style so retro looking streetlight to not fit in there. OK we get also now some residential areas who imitates old houses (i dislike it very much) but even there imitaton gaslanterns are not used.

Imitation gaslights are only used in the historic parts of towns in the Netherlands. Some are fine (if it is a real copy of an old design) but most are cheap rip offs.
