My old daycare that I used to go to in Laconia was demolished recently. I remember there used to be some fluorescent troffers in there (F32T8 probably) and an old halogen floodlight outside that was meant to light the power meters but it was pointing directly at the siding! I'm sure there was some cool stuff I just don't remember. The place was built in 1900 too. As of today it looks like it will be a parking lot as gravel has been laid down and concrete light pole bases are now there.
Sad. There were probably some cool fire alarms in there, too.

Maybe, I think they were some newer model. I have a memory of when they went off, my 5 year old memory thought the building was going to blow up!

Sounds like you're describing a continuous electronic horn. Most of of the horn codes I've heard are temporal/code three.

Sounds like the ones at my old elementary school, it was like a loud electronic buzzing that continued on until the alarms were turned off.

That's called temporal coding. Pretty much the only coding I've heard from a fire alarm.

Okay, let's return to the main topic, please. ;)

There’s a lot in Belmont that’s being subdivided for commercial use and it is wide open and has two utility poles with one holding a 50w HPS 201SA. When that land and the two lots abutting it sells, the setup will be removed to make way. I will try to get day and night pics.

Well the parking lot of J&Js Yolk in Belmont is finally being redone and unfortunately it required the removal of the GE PF154 floodlight on the property. Hasn't worked since I've known about it, also has the bulb socket loose.Oddly the fixture had a 40 sticker! If I see it lying around, I'll try to ask for it.

CreeRSW207 - Why is unusual that the PF154 had a 40 sticker? Did it have a different wattage or type of lamp or something?

The PF-154 is considered a low-wattage utility flood light. Oddly enough, it was available in 400W. The same goes for the Cooper OVX.

Very odd. I was thinking of a possibility that it could be a 400w MH cram lamp but the tag looked orange so I won’t know until when/if I can get the fixture.
