Unknown open lantern - Gear

Unknown open lantern - Gear

Click to view full size image

Unknown open lantern, this one with gear cover missing. Few of those are lighting a car park in a 70s neighborhood

The 2 capacitors (and not 1 big) suggest that it might be intended for full night/part night work. Nowadays in most of them both lamps work full night

Interesting I was about to ask the same question! The only dual-lamp mercury lanterns here I believe are the ones lighting signs on major roads and motorways. Nice compact design for a two-lamp fixture, I expect these are designed to provide a fairly narrow light distribution with a little extra periphery illumination provided by the lower lamp. I wonder which one stays on all night? I presume the lower one.

I'd asume too. The ones here are working with both lamps all night, except a few with 1 or both lamps being EOL as they are not maintained too well

If it's lack of maintenance rather than unexpected failure (damage, cracked arc tube etc.) it must have been left like this for some time with mercury lamps going out completely!
