What's your favorite older, unusual parking lot, floodlight, or streetlight fixt « on: April 08, 2021, 05:16:51 PM » Author: Morbid Angel
This topic might be difficult but I still thought that it might be fun.

For me it's easy the Line Material/Mcgraw-Edison Stylaire

But the GE Powerglow is a close runner-up.

Street Light: General Electric M-1000 (preferably with a capacitor fin, either 700w or 1000w MV)
Parking Lot: General Electric Powerglow A4000
Floodlight: Either Wide-Lite F-Series or Westinghouse MRF-400 (it was a close tie between this two fixtures...) I also like the older model GE PF-1000.

I don’t collect lighting, however I have always been interested!
I enjoy photography, making videos, and will be here to photograph street and outdoor lighting.

Other interests include hiking, nature, biking, as well as identifying and photographing birds and plants.

The GE M-1000 is by far my most favorite fixture used in older parking lots.

This is my favorite parking lot light.

The Powr/Bracket is my all-time favorite light.

Hmmmm...so many to choose from!
For roadway applications, it's a toss up between the Westinghouse OV15/OV25, and the ITT American-Electric Series 13 and Series 25.
For parking lots, i'd be the Westinghouse 2nd generation OV50.
For flood light applications, I've always liked the Westinghouse MRF-400/1000, and the GE Power-Flood series.

BTW we got the ITT 13 for my brother's birthday. He will get it in a few months.
