MV in Montmartre street

MV in Montmartre street

Click to view full size image

This is a street somewhere in the Montmartre region in Paris. The second-last lantern on the righ-hand side appears to sport a clear MV and the rest, coated (fluorescent) MV. It might, however, be a plain old greened out MBF.

Clear MV don't exist here. Maybe a 4200k CMH but i think no.

I don't think this is a CMH there, it is more likely a mercury lamp wich is either greend out or simply broken (I have seen a few of these in Montmartre due to vandalism)

I think Max's explanation is just about correct. The bare arc tube is operating in the fixture, hence the green colour.

Yes, but it was very short (about 36 hours). I helped organize a school exchange in which twelve students from my school participated. It took place in Belle-Ile-en-Mer, in the Morbihan (Brittany). On the way back, we visited a bit in Paris. With twelve students, it was not a lighting photo trip. I did, however, take notice of the lighting. It was very apparent that the HF craze is taking over Europe, just as it is doing now in Canada (and the USA).

My mother and sister went to France, - Paris, Nice, visiting friends in the 80s. They went to all the tourist places as well as "back country areas". They enjoyed it.
