Vintage bullet shaped streetlight


This is an old picture. Im not sure if these still exist. Im guessing there pretty old. Many of them had been spot replaced over the years by a number of different lights.

Made by Sylvania in Canada. They are usually mounted on a pipe arm and are mostly either 100 or 125 watts mercury vapour. They were somewhat common here but they are all gone now, unfortunately.

Powerlite cuplight fixture. These and the very similar looking McGraw Edison model were commonly used for residential side streets back in the day. These only had medium sockets so 100-125w MV lamps were what they typically used.

An incandecent/remote MV version was also made. I have one of those in my collection.

Its really to bad, They look quite nice. I noticed some of these have been converted to CFL. Im not surprised, still better than a complete replacement.

I really hope this style in lighting comes back sometime in the future, even if they are all LED.

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

Yeah, LED actually looks pretty decent in these luminaires.
