Short-lived revival

Short-lived revival

It was already THIS, then this unexpected revival occured. But after just some weeks everything went dark again. Probably the fuse blew and one repair attempt had been made.

A close look at the badly greened out lamps is here. At least things are still better here than on the next pole where the output not even triggers the white balance of the camera anymore in the presence of moonlight.

Very nice photo It reminded me of my own photo that I didn't upload here so far. I need to make more regular updates.

The installation should also be of roughly the same age than the ORZ 7 in this photo, i.e. towards the end of the 60s or in the earlier 70s.

I also found only now some time to upload photos I made back in summer. In the first place every opportunity to take such pictures should be used, before it is too late. (In a sense LED technology may even come to the rescue: I heard of ongoing evaluations of LED retrofits as substitutes for the no longer available MV lamps, as an alternative to expensive full replacements of the old lighting installations.)

Nice photo kai, I like this atmosphere with the moon in the background and the contrasting orange illumination from the sodium lamps. What is it exactly that this mercury luminaire is illuminating? Train tracks only?
