Now you can see the full scroll arm with the fixture. It appears that these lights are operated by a photocontrol separate from the fixture somewhere on the pole.

I'm not sure if there's any photocontrol at all... from the other pic of it you have, it looks like it's on continuously

Reply from Tracey Beckham: I went back to look for these as dayburners and most were lit during the day. I saw only a few that had separate photocontrol brackets. And some more modern NEMA "yard-light" incandescent fixtures with a twistlock photocontrol on top with a transparent ruby red plastic lens shaped just like a yard light style (really cool!).

Lots of them here in the northeast. Many with their original iron wire and old crossarms on poles with green glass insulators in abundance. Most notably in New Bedford, MA which has many stretches of open-wire Gamewell circuits in service. I also heard their central fire alarm telegraph office still has their huge glass-enclosed Gamewell brass-gear-mechanical ticker-tape style receiving station (1920s) somewhere in working condition within their system! Either the New Bedford City Hall, Fire Department Public Relations and/or Historical Society in that city may be able to help you out with questions. All I know is that is really neat seeing lots of old fire alarm telegraph circuits in service with glass insulators etc! Please refer to:

This alarm light looks a little bit to my Philips TB 200 lantern. http://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=42&pos=5

It's a Wheeler I think. Originally it didn't have that red thing, only the wavy disc...
