Photo taken Dec 1980. Long Beach, CA. I remember them having OV20s before 1977 or so. The 6.6A reg is the 3rd pole back it was cascade controlled from another series system.

I am in Long Beach as I type this, lol. Form109, yes Norelco made fixtures in the 70s and the early-mid 80s. Norelco basically was the US division of Philips. The LPS here have since been replaced with HPS. A tiny handful of LPS remain.

I will need to ask Rick where this is, Long Beach is a big city and I can't just go out and find this spot, lol.

I am looking west on Stearns st at Bellflower Bl. The poles, wires and building are gone, as they re-done the Los Altos shopping center.

That shall be interesting...I have a good picture of before and after in Annapolis and same for NYC! So I am very interested! I would assume traffic light one is still there? or a new traffic light pole?

I found this exact location, the old poles are still there but now have M250A2s, 150w HPS. The traffic lights have since been replaced.
