After a long perseverance and even getting out bid twice on E-bay by Fake Bidders, I finally got one from the Street Lighting Department yes a Phosco P178 “RIX” Post Top Street Light this one is fitted with a NEMA Socket and Zodion SS6 Electronic NEMA Photocell, this Light is designed for use with a 35 or 55 watt SOX Low Pressure Sodium Lamps, this Lantern requires separate Control Gear to run the lamp, which would be mounted remotely within the base of a Lighting Column (Lamp-Post) etc.

Nice fixture, I had seen these in pictures as well as the larger unit, and liked them.

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