What is also interesting is that it was the only lantern like that in that area:

Still nice to see it.

Unfortunately I've seen it only at day, so I can't tell if it is still connected to the grid or cut off.

That's a pretty wild mix of lanters there all over the place. Someone couldn't decide?

Once it was probably more uniform but later on different eras layered new things on top of previously existing and now there is a such mix. Often modernisations are done in such way that new replaces old in 1:1 fashion, even if old setup of lighting is far from perfect and there is a room for improvement. More than once I've seen a change of concrete poles with HPS fixtures to metal with LEDs but after the change they are still too few and too far apart, even if it is possible to increase the number of lights. Also it isn't rare to see a pole with more than one fixture and those lighting the road on one side are changed to LED, while those on the other side remain HPS. Or like when due to some changes to roads near a junction at one point in time 2 or 3 new high masts with HPS fixtures are installed amidst a forest of old masts with older HPS fixtures and later on those oldies are upgraded to LED while newcomers remain HPS because they are too young to be upgraded, even if they stick out like a sore thumb. It happens all the time and in many countries.
