The bulb looks so small in it! Were you able to save this?

I'm really surprised it lasted this long. Incandescent streetlights were done away with in Tacoma 1981, when I was growing up. (The 300W acorn style on concrete poles lasted a few years longer into 1985, before being converted to 70W HPS.)

Do not argue with an idiot.  They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Joe had explained to me that Holbrook kept their incandescent street lights because they were grandfathered into a contract with the utility company, where they were only obligated to pay $5 per light, including maintenance and energy consumption. So despite the higher maintenance costs and energy consumption associated with incandescent street lighting, it made no sense financially for the town to switch. In 2008, they had their MV lights on the more "main" roads replaced with HPS. Incandescents were only replaced if damaged beyond the repair of a lamp or PC. I think more recently they might have stopped relamping the incandescents since I don't know of any companies still producing street light lamps. Unless they were just using clear "rough service" 100W incandescent lamps you see in the hardware store. I can't see a huge utility company making that kind of commitment. Yet there's a good number of them left. Same for Jamestown, RI, which I assume may be in a similar situation. They've yet to go LED.
