1960s Powerlites

These guys light a grocery store parking lot. Interestingly enough, this was exactly how the MTO lit the the 401 before the 90s. Complete with the MTO style truss arm. On the 401 400w MV B2215s lit the inner express lanes while 700w MV B2213s lit the outer collector lanes. I wonder if this setup used the same wattages or did they use 1kW MV instead. Note that one of the B2215s has a giant glareshield. The 1960s Powerlites had these as a option.

(Fun fact, all of the 1960s Powerlite cobras are in this pic, even the B2217)
