Nice! These may not be the best but we should try to save every HID streetlight, vintage or not. LEDs are rampant these days.

Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)

-Date decoder of some US lamps 1960-present.
-Switch and receptacle collector.
-I'll save any vintage lamp! Smiley

T&B started to cheapen the fixtures. Typical when a buyout occurs.

Nice! I have two used 113s from 1987, a used one from 1990, and an NOS one from 1990. All four are cheaply made. My 1977 ITT 13 is rather cheaply made too. Still nice looking lights though. I think GE and Westinghouse always had AE beat for built quality, at least since the mid-60s. My 1966 AE 25 is rather flimsy compared to my GEs from th same era. I'd like to come across an original 13-000 model and see what the built quality for those was like. I'd imagine they were sturdy as most lights from the early 60s were.

These were used widespread here in the early 90s. Almost all were 50W HPS with some 100w HPS. For some reason they didn't use these for 250W at all; they used 125s for 250W HPS. It's odd to be because they were used M-250R2s for 250W HPS since the late 80s and in the late 80s they also used the OVS for 250W HPS, so why stick with medium size lights with AE? I personally think 250W HPS should be used in medium size fixtures. Less glare, better optics, and the gear runs cooler. A lot of 250W HPS small cobraheads I come across have soot marks inside from at least a decade of running hot.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

The 115 shown in the photo next to the 113's actually feels like a heavier fixture. It was made by American Electric. I agree on the wattage for the smaller cobra heads, heat is often the enemy.
