The main area that has 3 of the 1940s fixtures also have newer fixtures from the 1970s that I fixed earlier this Year the newer fixtures have ballasts that I replaced all going back to 1977 I saved the ballasts , Fixing the newer fixtures was the trade off for the 5 1940s lights,

As with the room that has 2 of the 1940s fixtures I don’t know what he wants to do He just has a lamp lighting that room ,

I did offer to install some nice new lights in that room but he will not let me ,

Wow that's awesome. Not very often you find them with all the louvers still there, makes me wonder if the F90T17 fixture I have is supposed to have one since it's got the lips on both sides

I brought them all home last night (all 5 of them ) I’m worn out from
Working in that hot warehouse yesterday but all fixtures have Ben saved , Man, It was hot in that building!!
Ballasts are bad , But appear to be all original Jefferson 3 lampers , I plan to keep the bad ballasts for Historical Reasons.
