Interesting, a 6 lamp half piper. With newer F40s fitted this place must have been bright.

Probably advancement with 8-footer slimline bulbs gave greater area of light.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I'm guessing architectural trends too, by the 50s the trend for lighting similar sized stores was 8ft slimlines mounted in continuous rows.

Love the 6 bulb half pipers and the diner counter. Wish I had a time machine.

If you popped in there by time machine and took the lights back to the present with you, you'd be coming back to a totally different world. See you taking those lights away from that time period would cause the owner to notice his lights are gone, causing the police to investigate then eventually new fixtures would have to be purchased and installed changing the stores future and all involved, the customers lives would be different and so on until the present is unrecognizable lol

And here I was thinking about the confusion I could cause if I replaced the tubes with LED tubes...

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

Curious that 8-foot slimlaine lamps displaced many 4-foot bipin lamps at the time, only to have 4-foot lamps make a comeback with all the T8/electronic conversions over the past couple of decades.

Always wondered why they use the 4 foot T8s now instead of the 8 foot T8s.
