I'd like to find one of these! Never met a Westinghouse Lifeguard I didn't like.

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

Awesome lamp! Clear-tops will probably always be my favorite.

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, especially HIDs and street lights!

Nope, because I have a 1000w Westinghouse from ‘77 that’s still clear top.

/C mercury lamps were cleartops much longer in all wattages. Also 1000w mercs were cleartops in all phosphor types longer.

Most older 1000w mercs that I’ve seen are always clear tops.

from the picture icon it looked like the lamp was taken by alien beam of light

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

LOL. It was in the GE M-100 open type mercury street light. 1963 vintage. Never used in California it was more of an East Coast thing.
