Found this on Google Streetview while I was looking for something else. I don't recall seeing any of these around here, or on here.

Westinghouse. Most likely MV. There were some in my part of the country and a few are remaining (and working, I believe).

Yes, they are bigger than they appear. Furthermore, the picture is kind of squished making it appear to be quite thin. There are some pictures of this style on LG. I don't remember the model name, however.

That would be a Westinghouse Viscount. Member streetlight98 (Mike) has one.

I knew someone with more knowledge would chime in. It is just that, a Viscount.

Thanks for the info, now I know it is truly old (probably 1970s) and probably MV as well. I really don't see lights around here very often that are this old anymore. At least, I don't think they are, I don't know streetlights that well.

I was doing some more searching on Google maps last weekend and found another one of these nearby this one. So there are at least two, but I didn't see any more around.

I wanted to update and say I've since found another Viscount on Google maps in addition to the first two. I drove by at night on the first two, and they do work, are  :mv: but one especially is very dim.

Today while I was driving around I also happened to find a fourth. I caught a funny looking light out of corner of my eye, had to drive around and figure out if I could get close to it because it's over a very tiny alley next to a Baptist Church. Turns out it was missing the reflector, bulb and even the socket unfortunately.
