I agree, they are rather quirky and unusual indeed. I like the English style too with the concrete posts with swan neck brackets and other historic designs.

Yes I don't mind these of the style you've mentioned, MVlamps I was referring only to telegraph pole usage, they could have been creative like the USA streetlighting has been done and like these in your pic too

I know what you mean now. Yeah telegraph poles are very common in Australia you see them in pretty much every town except for the middle-upper class developments these days that have regular lamp posts as well as town/city centres and places that don't have an existing telegraph pole. I'd estimate that 80% of homes and small businesses in Australia get their power from telegraph poles although they can be vulnerable in heavy winds or thunderstorms.

Yes it was also my experience of Australian streetlights. In city centers most regular lampposts but in the suburbs besides some main roads most streetlights are on telegraph poles. Although I know also parts of Perth with older houses have normal lampposts about 5-6 meters tall mounted with Sylvania B2224, Urban and Suburban lanterns.

Yeah we have them too round here for the side streets using the Sylvania lanterns. Sometimes you see the old fluorescent lights although they are rather rare these days.

GEC Z9464 90w SOX/LPS

These ones are actually 135w MA50's; they are a bit longer than the MA90 and have 3 bowl clips instead of 2 (I have both types in the collection).

Good spotting, I thought all SOX was extinct in NSW like QLD is now. Is this in or near Cowra?

Traffic signals & street lighting engineer. Please bring SOX/LPS back Downunder!!

Ah! Didn't know that.

Nope this was taken in Parkes which still has quite a substantial amount of SOX left. Cowra is only an hour from here.

Yes as Al said, the big brother of the MA90. I have just added one of these to my collection - new old stock straight from the UK.

It's great to see you and Al have saved some. Slightly poor quality photo here as the picture was taken from inside the car since I felt it was too dangerous to step outside from heavy traffic.
