A.C. Ford's lanterns (UK) « on: July 07, 2021, 09:48:49 AM » Author: Cole D.
I've found these street lamps for sale on A.C. Ford's website. Does anyone know if they are all still in production? I am pretty sure the 888 model is at least.

I really like the vintage look of all these!

I would guess that since most of them are mercury vapor, they should have been discontinued by 2015 due to the EU ban on mercury vapor lamps.

As far as I know none of them are, I inquired about the AC810 back in 2014 and they said they weren't making them anymore.

I doubt this company even exists anymore, AC Ford stuff was out of date 15 years ago!

There are some references to their products on this site, which is one of my favorites:

http://www.streetlightonline.co.uk/

Most specifically these pages mention acquiring the lanterns new in 2006 and 2008, the first one being made to order
by that point due to low demand:

http://www.streetlightonline.co.uk/newAC850_photographs.htm

I believe there are other pages on that site referencing the A.C. Ford company's other products, but I can't find them
at the moment.
