Westinghouse OV-50 In former Kmart parking lot

Westinghouse OV-50 In former Kmart parking lot

Click to view full size image

most of this parking lot has been converted to MH shoeboxes but there is still 9 or 10 OV-50's left 4 have broken or missing refractors, the rest appear complete.
I'm not sure if any of these still work .

It's a shame that these Westinghouse OV-50 Silverliners are being replaced. At least they're getting replaced with MH shoe boxes instead of LED toilet lids though.

truthfully, the shoeboxes were there when K-mart was still there 10 yrs ago ! the 3 lamp poles are off to the side of the building with the single lamp poles along the side road.

They are here: https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x8838842b9f86746d%3A0xc25cd4c7a72a87cb!2m22!2m2!1i80!2i80!3m1!2i20!16m16!1b1!2m2!1m1!1e1!2m2!1m1!1e3!2m2!1m1!1e5!2m2!1m1!1e4!2m2!1m1!1e6!3m1!7e115!4s%2Fmaps%2Fplace%2FPlanet%2BFitness%2BColumbus%2C%2BOH%2B43207%2F%4039.8909473%2C-82.9993008%2C3a%2C75y%2C107.56h%2C90t%2Fdata%3D*213m4*211e1*213m2*211sgMFxy0-ZR1pTYvhQchuk5Q*212e0*214m2*213m1*211s0x8838842b9f86746d%3A0xc25cd4c7a72a87cb%3Fsa%3DX!5sPlanet%20Fitness%20Columbus%2C%20OH%2043207%20-%20Google%20Search!15sCAQ&imagekey=!1e2!2sgMFxy0-ZR1pTYvhQchuk5Q&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjo9uzU9c7jAhXUUs0KHaMNBbMQpx8wCnoECA4QCw

In the late 90's early 2000's I replaced many Wal-Mart Division 1 parking lots that had 1K mercury and installed newer 1K fixtures. WM did not want any HPS so I went back with mercury vapor. We threw LM, GE, and Westinghouse thousand watt cobra fixtures in the trash bin. Most were 277V and mixed with replacement multi volt.
Wish I would have kept a few of the monsters but the trucks were full of new fixtures and lamps for store re-lamping schedules.

I missed 16 LM Unistyle 1000's at a local strip mall, they were there one day and gone without a trace the next . They were replaced with LED spatulas !

The shoe-boxes are in use, the OV-50s that are missing the refractors on the pole with three of them clustered together on the southern-most portion of the parking lot are amazingly still burning, albeit on their last leg. They have two metal halide bulbs with high hours still chugging along. All of the other OV-50s are in some state of disrepair & not burning.
