Nice. These are some of my favorite street lights. My elementary school had these at the gates and roadways leading in when I went there. Most have been replaced with LED there, except one that doesn't work anymore. But there are a few of these in my area still used. They are all HPS here though.

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

I always have liked these fixtures, although it's been awhile since I've seen any in service. General Electric made these and they were called Power/Bracket fixtures. And of course, it's MV, which is my fave.

The GE Powr/Bracket is probably my favorite street light of all time. But, they are even rarer here than these American Electric versions, and the GEs here are all MV with the big refractor, which I really like. I can only think of 4 I've seen here, but I did wonder if at one time they were more common. It's too bad they stopped making them recently, but at least AEL still makes these for now, and Cooper makes their versions.

Nice! These are the best if you want a quick easy installation. They look so clean too! I believe GE pioneered this design around 1964 or so, meaning the earliest ones were silver. Would like to find one of those some day.

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