I'm sure there were multiple 500 watt mogul base bulbs in those

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

Cool looking fixtures! It's too bad outdoor incandescent fixtures didn't make it to present day since with LEDs being all the rage they could just upgrade to LED with a mogul base corn cob abomination lol.

Don't get me started with those corn cob bulbs!!! Our apartment complex did a spot relamping from 175w hps to those. I was lucky enough to be there when they converted them but, unlucky in the sense that I got none of the old gear.oh well. Normally I'm ok with 6500k but with greened bowl diffusers the CRI index is actually WORSE with the corn cob lights.

175W HPS doesn't exist. Do you mean metal halide? Or perhaps 150W HPS? HPS is orange and MH is white. Eww the lenses are green? Sounds like they really need to be cleaned!

They were HPS... I guess that goes to show how much the guy on the lift knew because I asked about wattages and he said 175 likely 150 then.

Maybe he was counting ballast losses or something. They LED people do that when trying to get HID people to switch to LED. They use the fact that HIDs actually use more power than the bulb says because of ballast losses, where on the other hand there are no "ballast losses" with LED fixtures because the wattage of the driver is factored into the wattage rating on the fixture. But I've never heard anyone call an HID fixture's wattage by its total power rating lol.

Looks like similar light pole fixture that now defunct local community church parking lot light fixture which was originally erected in the late 1950s at Prospect Height, IL, USA where I grew up there.

As I recalled that they are either two or three light bulbs in [Medium] (one-inch) Edison Screw (E26) version. Probably fitted with 300 Watts bulbs back then

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Interestingly the old Sylvania/Powerlite cobraheads had the total wattage on the fixture label. They had one field for the lamp wattage and another for the total wattage. I've seen those fixtures in a lot of pictures of old 1950s gas stations.
