Pasadena hills - fancy radial wave

Pasadena hills - fancy radial wave


These lights are a real treat to see. They are located in an upscale neighborhood in the hills above the Rose Bowl near Los Angeles, California. The fanciest thing is the ornate arm - otherwise they are merely a plate, a socket and a regular household incandescent lamp. Some are in rather bad condition though.

Very nice pic. Very rare to find a radial wave on a metal pole these days.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

And such ornate poles, at that. This neighborhood is gorgeous, too - probably why the streetlights have not been changed - the houses and properties are large and expensive and have impressive views of the valley, the roads are narrow, steep and wind up the canyon, and I'm sure the property owners want to keep these unique lights. Unfortunately the lights really need to be restored as some are missing reflectors and most need to be painted, like this one. Although I didn't see these particular lights at night, I saw several MILES of other radial wave incandescents at night, not far from here, and they were amazing! It's like a trip back in time - and a camera cannot capture it properly - you have to see it in person (again and again, of course).

I'm lampin...

Always wondered what cold rain would do to a hot exposed bulb in these.

Nothing like the beautiful cool white light of a coated Mercury Vapor lamp and the soothing hum of it's magnetic ballast.

It should be used with larger size lamp that runs cooler (due to the larger surface area) and does not explode
