Insane mix of everything

Photos of a not existing anymore installation consisting of high masts with different mixtures of fixtures. Different photos show different masts. On this one we have one working HPS fixture from 90's, some working 125W MV fixtures with heavily used lamps (the only mast with those working) and two dead very bulky fixtures for 1000W MV lamps.

Mixing 9 (or 10) different lanterns could be a sort of art or an interesting experiment in observing their degradation during years.

A single mast in a park as a decoration with different fixtures? Actually why not? There are some similar concepts in the world. As a decoration it would be an interesting idea. However the situation on the photo is a fail as it was suppossed to be regular lighting of a sports stadium. At the time of creation of that instalation the industry couldn't make fixtures each dedicated for different tasks so for example the function typically perfomed by floods was often performed by substitutes in the form of different combinations of streetlight fixtures. Original 1000W MVs worked well but later on instead of setting everything up anew, they were modernising cheaply by replacing single fixtures step by step and the end result was disjointed. The presence of 125W MV is especially senseless as those masts were too high for the 125W lamps to actually light anything apart from the lamp chamber of the fixtures. Fortunatelly or not, the stadium was modernised and now there are dedicated MH floods which perform as they are expected to.

Found an old photo of the original state of high masts there, as expected originally there was a mix of 1000W MVs and 125W MVs:

Those at that place weren't the only case of such mixes, I've seen several different cases and it would take some time to remember them again if I wanted to list them all.

Now to imagine how it must have looked like when all 1000W MVs were running at full power during a night.
