This must have been made right when the L-150 production stopped and the OVS first came out.

Yeah. the L-150 had a far back PC and so does this. More resemblence. Like how Westinghouse kept the far up PC on the first single door OV-25

I saw a late 80's Crouse-Hinds OVZ with the photocell pushed back in Harrison Township but it was replaced with a 100 watt high pressure sodium streetlight in 2011.

And that 150 watt HPS M-250 R2 probably was replaced with LED by now.

It's also funny to see that the Cooper fixtures of the same model have photocell sockets mounted anywhere. xD For different generations.

They replaced a 150w FCO M-250R2 with a 250w Drop OVX once, but the OVX stopped working after only a month in service.
