Older store bulbs.

Older store bulbs.

These bulbs are in an older looking store. There is a lot of Westinghouse F40s and F20s in the lights. The outside light is F48 high output. The empty fixtures in the store are interesting as well. I would love to have some of these bulbs. It looks like there is one Westinghouse F96 bulb left.

WOW!! This is a great picture! It's like a step back in time with all of those Westinghouse fluorescents and those 80's track lights. Thanks for posting this!

Those empty fixtures (that someone did a very tacky-looking 'upgrade' to) are particularly cool looking.
I also really like the 3xF20 fixtures in the windows

Forget the lights..just give me a good lightning storm & tornado to go watch...

Those fixtures on the right where there is a shoplight tacked onto, that appears to be some very rare and unique slimeline fixture. You can see the lamp sockets and the one channel to get wires from one end to the other.

I think all of the lights here are really cool especially the fact there are some blackenders still in use. The rightmost lights are some very rare slimline fixtures they almost look like they’re adjustable to fit different sized lamps.

Those 8ft four lamper fixtures on the right are really something. I don't think I've ever seen a light with a design like that.

I love the huge fixtures on the right.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

We used to have a thrift store here that had the style of the big fixtures on the right except they were 8 lamp units and they were impressive. The store went out of business over 10 years ago and they were torn out. I think it may have originally been a JC Penney from the 1950's

Awesome! Those would have been HUGE!

Hmm given how wide they look in the pic, I was wondering if a 8 lamp model was ever made. I've only ever seen 8 lamp 8ft lights once, at a 1958 grocery store.

The best I can recall is that they were about 8'x8' square. The ceilings were high and the store was big, there were about 16 or 20 fixtures. It was a neat look, basically the bare lamps hanging between the two end pieces, the two small channels with the wires were not noticeable above the lamps, the fixtures were massive, perfectly maintained, never saw a burned out lamp.

What a mix of fixtures in this pic. I can't quite tell if the center one with 4 black enders is 72" or 48" probably 48"
