Unique Poles With a Lot of History

Unique Poles With a Lot of History

Click to view full size image

These poles are still scattered around downtown Kamloops, BC.
They originally saw life with incandescent gumballs in the 50's, then converted to fluorescent in the 60's before being again converted to High Pressure Sodium in the 70's. These days they are being refitted again with LED heads as the sodium heads fail. Some have a pair of unused insulators mounted at the base of the curved pole.

I see a Philips Lumec Roadfocus RFM, AEL 115s, and a Cooper OVZ. And possibly a AEL/ITT Model 13.

Save the Cooper OVWs!! Don't them down by crap LED fixtures!!!

There's no OVZ there. I think what you're seeing is the Powerlite R37 (3rd pole back on the left). Very nice lights those are.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.
