Pair of Early Mid Century Line Material Series Street Lights

Pair of Early Mid Century Line Material Series Street Lights

Click to view full size image

Bought these two Line Material incandescent street lights at different times. One has been converted to 120V two wire operation by replacing the Jones socket assembly and the other still has the series socket. One hood has the LM logo on the front and the other on the rear above the slip fitter. The green porcelain bushings are all without cracks or chips as are the refractors. One reflector has the house side deflector inside the globe assembly and the other does not.
Not the usual faceted LM refractors, these are the early models.

Thanks! I need to clean them up a bit and continue to modify the one to 120V two wire.

These are indeed nice luminaires...I'm just not fond of series wiring though.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Me neither. I have a few new Jefferson Electric 250W mercury ballast assemblies that I am considering installing in them. The pigtail wires from the insulators are long enough to go to the merc's terminals. I was concerned if the 250W ballast would be affected (age quicker)by the enclosed glass and being above the lamp instead of beside it like in a cobra but I think it will be fine.

250W would be pushing it. 100W or less HPS would be OK in an enclosed optic.
