I think this is a beautiful fixture. There are a decent number of these around in HPS. But this one is MV and been dayburning since this streetview was taken.

Plus I think this might be an early one, since it looks silver.

Looks like an American Electric 17-000. @lightinglover8902: The first generation OV-25 has the PC socket on the front of the light. This also doesn't look light it has two doors.

Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)

An AEL 17-000? Then this is SUPER rare fixture! Because at glance, it looks like a 1st generation OV-25. But nice to see this rare fixture in service!

AE 15-000. 17-000 was the original 327 IIRC. Very rare light before they went to the body housing in the mid 60s.

I know of a parking lot that has 8 of these. I always thought they were Revere fixtures.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Cool that it's very rare. How old is it? I like this fixture and the arm. I wish there was a way it could be saved, if it got replaced with an AEL 115.

Also, I fixed the model number.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

My 1966 AE 25 is the boxy style, so this is older than that. I think the boxy style rolled out in 1965 or 1966, so this is an early-mid 60s light.
