My favorite light fixtures are 100w mercury vapor, 70w metal halide, and 400 watt metal halide and 400 watt mercury vapor fixtures. My all time favorite street lantern is the GE M1000.

My overall favorite fixture is a GE M1000 lantern with both the glareshield and without the glareshield. My favorite fixture in my collection is my 60w SLI/H fixture.

Some of my other all time favorite street lights include the Revo Silvergold and the Wardle Solar. I would love to have some of those lanterns in my collection as they have such interesting designs for LPS street lights.

Hmmm, I think we need pics here?, we’re all putting what we like, but if you’re not familiar with European, US or UK lanterns it’s confusing!
Mine was GECs  Z9517 pictured here, (picture thanks to Simon Cornwell @ Street lighting | UK), these were installed in mass over our town in the 70s/80s running linear sodium lamps, and given sodium lanterns at that time were big bulky things, the Z9517 was one of the best smart and sleek designs I remember as a kid!
