I'd guess the pole will rotate so the fixture can be serviced from the roof ?

Every time I see this gathering of HPS lights I think "The streetlights wanted to go to church but they couldn't!"

no, i'm not a sentient streetlight person and i never will be 8;)

Continuing from my comment regarding LPS being used in Los Angeles, I found a holdout of abandoned (HALS, PL&S, or Spaulding) FCO fixtures next to LAX visible from Pershing Dr.

Speaking of LPS, I can remember when I was little, LPS was all over San Jose! I may be confusing LPS for SOX. I do know there were LOTS of SOX in San Jose in around 2011-2014, but recently I found a LPS fixture in a parking lot.

I also found some childhood streetlights on GMaps, I haven't been able to get the best of photos in real life.


I think I spy a clamshell, and a Westinghouse Metal Halide!


That one lantern with a shield reminds me of when I was somewhere in Walnut Creek at night, and there were plenty of those then. I do know that the poles were oddly shaped.

Found this pretty interesting, a pile of misc lighting glassware in front of a lighting supplier labelled free stuff. I see what looks like a M-400 glass and a Holophane wallpack glass.

Westinghouse OV-50


Re: Google Street View Finds « Reply #192 on: November 30, 2022, 08:04:28 PM » Author: RandomCatPerson

The OV-50 on the right I believe is my particular fixture and the one with the glare shield belongs to Wide-lite 1000.

Some ultra-rare Westinghouse OV-14s in Mississippi. There is only one complete fixture.

Here are some old LPS fixtures in England Airpark near Alexandria, Louisiana.  They do not light up at night.

Here is a top mount NEMA in Bastrop, Louisiana.  Unfortunately the weird double images are the best angles I could find on them.
