1967 Concrete column & Philips XRP-826 SOX-55

Most of the plates had faded but I found one that stated the height & date. From the MV era just about when the road was built about 1967. In 1994, most of the metropolitan Montreal area converted to HPS but a few places chose LPS. Looks like a 1995 date on the fixture stickers.

Interesting to see a square pole and double guy arm used in 1967 too. I noticed some LPS around the Montreal area but I haven't seen these before.

55w low pressure sodium working for the last 24 years, apparently.
