These look so unappealing imo
It would look better without the diffusers

I have never seen them lit up.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

I am actually kind of fond of those lights! Maybe its because there used to be a large installation of them at a park pavilion I used to enjoy visiting.

These are actually just recessed cans with a trim that holds a cover, but I consider them (because the diffusers are also available in flat styles) the round versions of 60s/70s incandescent recessed squares (which this park also has).

It's a recessed can with a shower trim. I like these drop lens over a shower but that's about it. Otherwise I like the "fresnel" style with the regressed trim.

I knew it was a recessed can with a shower trim. I would put one of these over a shower and put in a 50 watt MV lamp with an HPF 1 lamp F40T12 RS ballast as the ballast. The mercury vapor would warm up while the shower water warms up!

LOL an HID shower light would be cool, but the lamp wouldn't last very long. HIDs need to be ran for several hours at a time with just one start a day to maximize lifespan. Would make a good dusk-to-dawn light in the soffit over your front door or garage or something though, if you have one.

The elementary school I went to had round recessed cans in the hallways and covered sidewalks (all hallways were open to outside). They had flat lenses and very thin trim and they were all HPS which I thought was so cool! They also had the smaller HPS wallpacks. My elementary school was built in 1991.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Eww HPS hallway lights? My elementary school was built in 1992 This is the architect's page on the school, featuring some of the cool lighting. All the classrooms had 3-lamp F40/RS wraps with injection molded Holophane diffusers. The library and cafeteria had 4x4 6-lamp F40/RS opal square lights.

-Hallways had 1x4 troffers with drop dish opal diffusers and 2 F40/RS lamps.
-Exit signs were two-lamp preheat PL, recessed cans in the library and administrative offices were 2X preheat PL13.
-Bathrooms and kitchen had 1x4 flat prismatic lensed troffers with aluminum regressed doors (lens was about an inch above the drop ceiling).
-Louvered single lamp continous row wall mount F40/RS lights were over the bulletin boards in the halls and over classroom doors in the hall.
-The main office had 2x2 troffers with either F20s or u-bend lamps and cool prismatic lenses with a bubble pattern on them.
-The main spiral staircase had the same troffers as the hallways at the bottom landing, with a row of louvered wall mount fixtures at the top landing. There's like five low-watt PSMH recessed cans with prismatic glass lenses and black stepped trims that are not maintained and were rarely switched on.
-Parking lot lights were low-watt MH prismatic "barrel" post top lights.
-Main entrance had "bulkhead" type lights with magnetic PL lamps in them.
-HPS GE wallpacks around the perimeter of the building.
-Gymnasium lights were GE glass shade 400W MH highbays with clear glass bottoms.
-Auditorium stage had neat MH spot lights that were basically a highbay inside a brown cylinder body and a glass lens on the bottom. I rarely saw them used and the few times I did only a couple worked. There were also rows of run-of-the-mill F40/RS wraps that were used for general lighting back there. I suspect the wraps were added after since they were generic and matched nothing else in the building.

Most of the lights are still there. I was there from 2003-2010 and everything was original; no retrofitting while I was there. I think the PL cans were left alone. All the fluorescents were converted to T8 around 2012. The PL exit signs are long gone, replaced with LEDs. The 4x4 square lights were all each replaced by two 3-lamp F32T8 lensed troffers side-by side long-ways to make a 4x4 area. The exterior lighting was all replaced with LEDs. The gymnasium lights were replaced with six lamp T8 highbays. Lots of cool lighting in that building for such a recent building!

I visited a high school that was built in 1997 and had a mix of PSMH and HPS recessed cans as accent lighting in the hallways. I suspect the HPS cans were originally PSMH too but the ballast/lamp failed and someone decide to replace it with HPS.

Yeah a lot of oem psmh ballasts are single tap and replacement ballasts are always multivolt so i wonder if the have issues with fitting replacement psmh ballasts inside them.

Inside the school most of the rooms had single tube fluorescent wraps, but what was cool were they were positioned a few inches above the rest of the ceiling and the tiles on each side angled upwards like this /-\\ with the dash being the bottom of the light. Cafeteria I think had multi-tube wraps on a high ceiling that looked like metal panels. For some reason they have installed low suspended ceilings in all the cafeterias that were built like that and added 2x4s. Why I don't know but it really looks boring now. Office probably had 2x4s but can't remember, I know the kitchen did. Oh and each classroom had a restroom with drywall ceiling and a rectangular fluorescent recessed fixture.

The gym area was just a covered pavilion at the back. Parking lot has AEL 115 cobras in HPS but some have been replaced with LED cobras now. Entrance roads all had AEL 165 ballast in arms in HPS but all except one are now NEMA heads or Evluma Areamax. There's some floods over the playground but don't know what type.

Yep all those cans were HPS, I even remember sometimes the lens would be removed and you could see the bulb. I went by at night recently and could tell a few look like MH now? Of course during the school day they were never on unless it got really cloudy out, since they were all on photocell. Each pod of four classrooms had a skylight out in the hallway to let light down during the day.
