There are 4 of these old sockets in a community center built in 1929. This and another were behind the stage. Both didn't have lamps. The other two were in some old unused bathrooms. One had a 1970's Sylvania 100w lamp and the other had a 1960's 100w lamp.

The mill building where the company I work for is wiring a commercial marijuana grow in Fall River, MA has some ancient lights above drop ceilings and inside old storage/utility closets. None with lamps though. I've seen incandescent sockets on cords that hang down from the ceiling a couple feet from a canopy and old fluorescent strips with no lamps abandoned above drop ceilings. I assume the strips originally were installed over prismatic panels (or installed before the drop ceiling entirely) but at some point troffers and surface-mounted strip lights and wrap lights replaced the inefficient plenum lights. The building is from the 1800s so no lighting in there is likely to be original.

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

Nice. I've seen these octagonal shaped sockets on eBay but yet to get any in my collection.

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