What's your favorite older, unusual parking lot, floodlight, or streetlight fixt « on: April 08, 2021, 05:16:51 PM » Author: Desultory13
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’ve always been interested in all kinds of lighting, mainly incandescent and HID, and especially all kinds of sodium lamps (HPS/LPS). I’ll tolerate LED but I’m not a fan of it.
I’m not proud to say that my city has Devolved to LED.

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

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.

Parking lot:

LM Stylaire for me too. Unfortunately quite rare as I've only ever seen one in person.

These Powerlite parking lot lights are pretty neat too.

Floodlight:

These 400w Steber flood are pretty unique.

Another one of my favourites is the Wide-Lite F Series.

Streetlighting:

Any vintage Powerlite
Any vintage GE
Any vintage Westinghouse

Too much to pick from lol.

I really like the Pericline and Contra/Cline from Moldcast Lighting and the Wide-Lite Supra-Lyte.

What I call the "floodlight" version of the AJ Ferguson Zodiac. This version has only the side mounting hole and nothing on top except 2 raised parts where the holes for the photocell and top mount arm would normally be located.
I have a Zodiac like this in my collection.

Fluro starter chimes combined with a 50hz ballast hum and blinking tubes is music to my ears.

Rest in Peace Electronic Lamp Manufacturers of Australia

Bring back the AJF Zodiacs!

Total incidents since joining LG: 11
Lamps accidently broken or smashed: 9
Ballast explosions/burnouts: 2
