My street lantern collection
IMG_6460.JPG This album displays my street light/lantern collection. I have been collecting for eleven years now. I have sourced my collection from garage sales, swap meets, private sales, auctions and tenders. You will notice that some of my lanterns are pictured operating. This has been made possible by a friend of mine who is a qualified electrician. He has inspected, repaired where necessary and fitted the appropriate electrical parts to make the lanterns safe to use. These lanterns are operated only at my home, which is fitted with RCD's (Residual Current Device) on all power circuits. I always strongly encourage everyone to let the professionals work their magic to get our 'gems' operating again.

Please note: As my gallery grows I have been placing 'links' in the description caption of photos to show you other photographs I have taken in relation to the photos you're looking at. This could be a photo of a street light in service or a street light in my collection. Some of my earlier photos are yet to have their descriptions updated with 'links' added to them. I don't want to fill up the description caption of my photos with loads of links though, so I will only add a few...but just because there are only a couple of links in a description doesn't mean that there is then nothing else to be seen about that lantern - take a look around that album or related albums...most of the photos I have uploaded have been grouped together, so if you're keen in what you see then take the time to view the surrounding thumbnails for your enjoyment :)

Street lantern floodlight towers in Toowoomba
IMG_5134.JPG This album is dedicated to four light towers that resided at a traffic light intersection in Toowoomba for forty to fifty years. The towers are at least 10 meters high. Each tower had three 'hat' shaped lanterns on top which were colored green on the outside. The lamps in these ranged over the years from self ballasted 700 to 1000 watt MV, some Eliptical lamps, others Reflector lamps. Unfortunately one tower had its 'hats' removed and replaced late last year, and double sadly the other three towers all had their 'hats' replaced with Integral High Pressure Sodium lanterns in late January. Unfortunately, after much trying it looks as though these have gone to the bin and there is nothing more I can do in order to save some so I can preserve them in my collection. 9 files, last one added on Nov 03, 2013
