A pair of these still light a thrift store parking lot. The tag on the pole says the pole was made in 1962 so I'm guessing that's when these were installed.

The other pole looked like it was a newer replacement and has Skyline Skylite luminaires instead. Not sure what light source these use, they might have been retrofitted to MH or HPS

In 1959 I sat in my junior high school class and watched AP&L install 50 foot creosote poles with OV-25's on 12 ft galvanized mounting arms. They were not replaced until the late 80's.

Interesting. There is a few of these left in streetlighting service in Toronto too. They're all 150w HPS but I believe they were 400w MV until the early 90s. The poles they are on look newer so I guess they were transferred over from another pole or rebuilt as HPS and reinstalled in the 90s.
