The stickers are in surprisingly good condition for being easily on a 60 year old fixture. I don't remember the exact backstory (Mike/Streetlight98 would know) but I THINK these came out of somebody's basement in either Rhode Island or Massachusetts, and I'm also told most of them had 34-watt tubes installed as found.

The pullchain switch is like nothing I've ever seen before; it pulls down/to its side instead of out, and takes some force to do so. It actually took me some time to figure it out once I wired the fixture to a cord, installed the sockets and reflector, and threw in a pair of 25-watt UTSL lamps for the initial test...

I tried to find the UL fixture issue number listed there and came up empty

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

That looks like a McGill Levolier switch. It takes so much force to operate those switches,it’s easy to pull the fixture down if it’s not securely mounted.

Yeah! I'm used to pulling out on a pullchain, not sideways. It's quite easy once you figure it out but it took me awhile!

I do like the side-pull chains...but some work better than others. They are hard to find but I bought some new online and they don't require much effort.

This one isn't bad once you know how it works...
