A Powerlite B2225
In a strange place! I have no idea why this is here but it is clearly a MTO setup, I doubt it lights up at night though the pole, arm and fixture all seem to be in perfect shape, oh how I wish I owned a bucket truck sometimes! Pardon the street view since the picture I got of it didn't turnout well, see the street view here.

Nice find, MTO used to use a lot of Powerlites back in the 60s and 70s, this one is just begging to be saved and the arm looks like it's in great condition.

Yeah this looks great, I still can't figure out why it is here though.

Oddly I've actually seen the truss arms used at a plaza before and at this entrance, but this one with the concrete pole looks like it really was put up by MTO.

Hey Joseph, do you know if anything has happened with that closed parking lot? It looks like four B2213s to me on those poles! And I can't help but think that places looks like it is going to be demolished soon, (if it hasn't already).

Nope sadly I don't, but I guess the place might have been demolished already and the condos finished...although the website on the ad is dead. And yeah they do look like four B2213s, well I guess you could still try to snag the four in Barrie.

The ones in Barrie are really to far away, and since I can't drive yet I have no real way of getting there. I am almost 100% sure I won't get them, I'm not even sure about the lights in now Cambridge since it is the same problem. Next weekend I plan on going to Active Surplus finally and getting some of those lenses, since this place is just along the route I would be taking anyways, I will take a look at this site and see what it looks like.

The Streetview you linked to make it look like a B2215!

Meh, I'll get a proper picture of it someday, hopefully the light too! And this shot is still much better than this one!

Well unless I get a picture first! Well actually that's a bit far to go just to get a picture of a light.

I will likely "suck" then, I don't think I'll be past there for about 18 days when we have to pick someone up from the airport.

Make a gull turd incinerator, connect it to a generator and sell it back to the grid, then see how much you make.

That depends if you use the peak or off peak rates.

It's possible but it isn't a provincial road.

Hmm. Maybe MTO leased lights to public commercial establishments.

Yeah it's very unlikely that MTO would lease lights, my best guess is a contractor got hold of a MTO truss arm, concrete pole, and Powerlite.
