A lovely light from the 30s is quickly removed to make way for modern mercury lamps.

What an awesome video. The M250R is probably replaced with an LED piece of garbage now.

I'm guessing between the MV and LED, the pole would have gotten a HPS fixture too. Wonder if anyone can figure out the location and provide a street view.

Could be in any Seattle residential area. SCL covers a lot of territory. I'm thinking near the Puget Sound coast.

Wow this video is awesome! Obviously unfortunate that the radial wave was replaced but it's awesome to know how that process was done back then!
