SO/H installations in Canada? « on: July 19, 2021, 08:29:35 PM » Author: WorldwideHIDCollectorUSA
After seeing that member joseph_125 posted something regarding a SOI/H low pressure sodium floodlight being found in Canada, I am starting to wonder whether Canada had any large scale installations of SO/H low pressure sodium fixtures and street lanterns since Canada used to be a part of the British Empire.

If there is any they will long have been re-lamped with SOX?
There was a small SO/H installation near me, on the old ICI chemical plant, they were even still in the original SO lanterns!, but here’s the kicker  :P, they were out of site at the back of the yard, with all the plants buildings hiding them from the road, it was only recently when they started to demolish it for houses, that they became visible, sadly though by that time the demolition site was heavily security guarded!

The lanterns and their original concrete columns disappeared a few weeks ago, I don’t know if their still lying down on site somewhere, or they have been skipped?
