UK Road Lighting "Then and Now"
Bearford Drive 49 years apart-April1966-March2015-redux-captioned-blanked.png An album to showcase changes to UK lighting usually over the periods of several decades when major changes in lighting have taken place. The emphasis here is not on artistic ability but purely on the factual side by side comparison.
Thumb: An installation on the same street in Glasgow 49 years apart - the lantern being the only change.

General Collection: Lanterns and Fixtures
MI26_on_the_warmup.jpg An album showing photos of lighting fixtures and lanterns that I own (or have owned). Currently own: Philips MI26, WRTL Arc, Thorn Stradalux.
