On an old industrial site. These luminaires can still be found alive also in Germany, like this one.

Very few of them made it to Israel in the 70s, i dont know how - I dont think Israel was buying anything from the Eastern bloc

One is in my collection - PVB7Atip from 70s Originally 2x250 MBF, was converted to 1x150 SON in 1988. I picked it in 2015

Such conversions, replaced now, existed also in the streetlighting system of Dresden.

In the GDR not anyway I think, all these conversions had been made only after 1990. And any mixture can certainly be ruled out: All such conversions from MV to HPS were complete. At least I have never seen a case where the assumed mixture didn't at the second look turn out to be a faulty HPS lamp...

Exports between "Capitalist" and "Socialist" *** blocks were extreme rare in 60's and 70's but some of them existed. For example if have seen one SIEMENS ALH-50 in Estonia (ex-USSR), I have also seen LBL Mandoline one time in Sweden.

You also find some old DDR, Polish, etc... fixtures in Africa.

They were more frequent in 80's (some PHILIPS HGS and SRS in DDR and Poland, TUNGSRAM-SCHREDER founded in Hungary in 1983, etc...).

I have seen one ELBA PVB-7 in Belgium and in West Germany also but they should have been imported by LBL (LEIPZIGER LEUCHTEN) in 90's.

*** Yugoslavia and Albania non included, were the situation was different.
