I think these might be old GE lights but I am not sure. The building that powered these was demolished, I think this lot is going to be developed very soon

Those don't look like GEs.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

I don't think they are Westinghouse. These have no rim on the reflector whereas the Westinghouse one does. Also the mounting on the pole is different.

Ballast-in-arm fixtures are very similar to one another and small detail differences between manufacturers can be easily missed.

I think I know where these are. If they're the ones here I think they were installed years ago when that building used to house a garden centre. I haven't really tried to figure out what they were. I think I just assumed they were Sylvania/Powerlite but not that I think about it I think these might have been a different manufacturer.

Unfortunately not really. Maybe sometime in the early-mid 2000s.

I think the reflector looks like Douglas. I agree sol.

Long live Mercury Vapor and Incandescent street lighting!
