A 70W SON-T GEC Z5590BP lantern fitted with an unusual Diakon refractor globe (normally found on the Z5580 model). The column is a 6m CU Concrete.

Concrete column replacements have now seen the removal of these lanterns in late 2006. New 6m steel columns with 70w Philips Iridium lanterns are now in place.

Nearby is another 70W SON-T GEC Z5590 lantern, this time fitted with the more common polycarbonate outer globe. This example has lost its internal glass refractor ring.

Replaced in December 2006.

Yet another 70W SON-T GEC Z5590 lantern. This example is complete with its refractor ring. The column is a 6m CU Concrete.

Removed during December 2006.

A GEC Z8896 lantern fitted to a metal sleeve on a 5m CU Concrete. The lamp is a 70W SON and the column is group switched. This column is scheduled to be removed during 2007 due to concrete column removals.

The next column carries a Revo Prefect lantern with an unusual prismatic glass refractor bowl. The lamp is a 70W SON. This column is group switched. There is another identical lantern on the same road.

Update- August 2005: sadly both Prefects have been removed. There are now no known examples with this globe style left in the area.

A Revo Solumbra post top lantern for 70W SON lamp. The column is a 5m Cohen steel.

A small collection of Revo Diadem lanterns with 70W SON lamps. Switching is by a SELC 841 cell on each lantern, and the columns are 6m Cohen. The outer globes are original glass Revo types.

A wood pole is home to a GEC Unknown lantern running a 70W SON lamp. Switching is by a RTE Oasis 2000 cell on the pole. Control gear is in the GEC metal box.

And another, lower GEC Unknown lantern running a 70W SON lamp. Switching is by a SELC 841 cell mounted on the pole.

A GEC Brookvale lantern lantern running a 70W SON lamp. The column is a 6m Concrete. This is the only remaining Brookvale lantern in the area mounted on a column, as all others are on pole brackets.

Continuing column replacements saw the removal of this installation in Spring 2007. The road is now lit by new 6m Steel columns and Philips SGS252 Iridium lanterns.

Next a 70W GEC Z5580 lantern lantern with a very clear polycarbonate globe. The column is a 6m Concrete.

Continuing column replacements saw the removal of this installation in Spring 2007. The road is now lit by new 6m Steel columns and Philips SGS252 Iridium lanterns.

Then a GEC Unknown lantern lantern running a 70W SON lamp. The outer globe is a polycarbonate replacement trimmed to fit.

Continuing column replacements saw the removal of this installation in Spring 2007. The road is now lit by new 6m Steel columns and Philips SGS252 Iridium lanterns.

A GEC Unknown lantern lantern looking as it should; with a glass refractor bowl. The column is a 6m Concrete.

The final lantern variant on the road; a GEC Z5580BP lantern running a 70W SON lamp. The column is a 6m Concrete.

Continuing column replacements saw the removal of this installation in Spring 2007. The road is now lit by new 6m Steel columns and Philips SGS252 Iridium lanterns.

Private- a Phosco P226 lantern is mounted on a building by the factory security gate. The lantern runs a 55W SOX lamp. The interesting part about this lantern is the NEMA cell. It appears to be an early RTE P5 thermal cell. The site also has a number of Thorn Alpha 9 lanterns on wall mounts and Thorn aluminium columns.
