Wow halfpipers.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

Great photos!

(and lots of stuff I want to save)

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Oh man I'd go for some of those turrets and the louvers that are not all twisted up!

Kinda interesting how the rooms with all those troffers had the lamps removed from them, perhaps they were T8 also, the ballast channels are shallow

WOW!!! Where is this located? I love the many types of lights but also love the buildings! Some of them look like the old cotton mills where I got some of my lights from. I saw several ALTO tubes in the photos, which means these places may not have been too long ago abandoned. I would LOVE to get my hands on some of those lights.

WOW!!! Where is this located? Collectors definitely need to (legally) get these lights before the buildings fall in or before they are vandalized or burned.

That looks nearly identical to an old cotton mill where I used to service forklifts. They did a remodel and I was able to get lots of their old fluorescent lights, many of which I have in use in my shop and around my farm. It has since gone out of business but the structure was saved and is used for an antique mall. Sadly another place, also a mill, where I got many of my Miller 2 and 3 tube F40 lights, burned down a few years ago. It was a beautiful structure and was filled with nice old lighting. Luckily a friend and I were able to save a little over half of the lighting legally when a company was re purposing much of the old lumber from the building's structure.
