All taken in April 2019. I went to visit some friends that live round here and took some photos of old street lamps on the way. I'm surprised how much old stuff was still around!
1 and 2: Thorn Beta 5 (top entry) on a very nice Stanton concrete column.
3, 4, 5 and 6: GEC Z8691s On various different poles and brackets, one dayburning.

Awesome lights!

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

That GEC lantern is a little bit similar to Mesko OURW250.
