Those look beautiful, and rare. Must be MV type fixtures around that time.

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

Very nice... weren't these towers just replaced a few years ago when they rebuilt the MN-60 interchange?

These are made by Holophane. I love the drop lens Holophane highmasts. They look awesome at night.

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

They were originally 1000 watt mercury. I imagine Fish Lake and 62/169/212 were the same fixtures. Mn/DOT eventually started using metal halide lamps, which resulted in a very bright lighting, then they started to replace three or four fixture with HPS and abandon the remaining mercury fixtures, but they didn't do it to all of them before the last installation, Fish Lake, was replaced entirely a couple of years ago.

Wow cool! I have seen fixtures similar to this in a nearby train yard.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.
