There are still a few of these here in town.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

There's none where I live. There was one on a garage a mile from my house, but it was taken down this spring and nothing replaced it.

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

The true NEMA lights were rare around me but there are some yardlights with the screw on refractor and I think the odd Sylvania bracket fixture around here.

Excellent find!

Yeah, it's cool. I never found one of these even back in the day. About 3 miles from where I grew up, there's an RV lot that uses these. They've been there since the '70s and 90% of them are still in use!

That's too bad. The few of these I've seen here are in the older neighborhoods, along with a few old Westy Viscounts. GE NEMAs overall aren't very common in my area, although GEC used a couple 201SA for rentals in my neighborhood at some point. Still far less common than Coopers and AELs. I've also seen a very early 201SA with the shorter hood, which is the only one I've ever seen. Probably MV, but it doesn't work.

PRECO uses a lot of 201SAs though, so they're very common in their service areas. None of these 101SA though, but I have seen Line Material NEMAs.
