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.

-Date decoder of most US lamps 1960-present.

-Collects all types of lights.

I'll save any vintage lamp... dead or alive! Smiley

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.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

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.

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.
