GE M-250R with the gray paint, I believe from the late 60's

Wow this shot!

No that's mold from not getting to much sun, we have lights up here that do that

Oh. Here it's black, almost like ashes.

These first appeared in Chicago's alleys back in late 1966.

Yep the GE M250R! I have never seen mould growing on a fixture before!

I've only seen mold on some lights. I honestly though they caught on fire because it looked like black soot.

I can picture it being a pain to clean off.

streetlight98   [Sep 13, 2011 at 09:05 PM]

Nah. Just sand it off. Laughing The mold is gonna leave a mark anyways, so I'd just repaint it.

I would consider that a pain! And I think there are likely better ways to get mould off.

Oxy-Clean. Gets the tough stains out. Razz Laughing Bleach will work. That's what my dad uses when we get mold in the garage

Mold on a light? Now that's crazy.
