These are located at an old strip mall here in Grove City.
There are a total of six sets of these remaining with 2 sets of 3 being replaced with AEL327's and Cooper OVF's and one more set being replaced with a square pole with only 2 LED's. these are all nicely maintained with the exception of the use of cram lamps instead of the correct BT-56's. There is also a pair of 400w revere cobras at the mall entrance by Dairy Queen, hovever, they don't work.
Also, some of these 2700's have fins/capacitor housings on them !

Beautiful street lamps! I wonder what voltage is supplying them. Weird & unique design.

My guess is 240v. Want weird, you should see the ones with the fin on top instead of the "double chin" on the bottom !

I'm definitely keeping an eye on these ! They are rather well maintained by the owner of the strip mall, the only replacements are the poles that got knocked down. all work except the 2 400 w 2600's on one of the entrance roads to the strip mall, in 25 yrs I've NEVER seen them lit !

Those are Revere “SUPEROVAL” 2701 from circa 1968. That system is 208 volts.

UPDATE ! : These were all relamped recently and are nice and bright except for 2 of them that apparently had bad ballasts that were retrofitted with LED flat panels inside the existing fixtures !

That's great they were saved. They looked in really good shape in this photo.

The only ones that have been replaced are 3 complete poles that have been knocked down over the years !

The fixtures actually look more "beefy" than other brand 1K's to me. Capacitors in the lower door near the slip fitter?

I'd guess so . This strip mall has a mixture of both these and the same but with the capacitor fin on top .

I like these better than any 1K that I have seen.
