Mercury B2277
By the mid 90s it seems mercury streetlights have more or less disappeared from the GTA, having been recently deposed by the current sodium lights. But in the northern reaches of the GTA a very small number of mercury streetlights still remain having evaded the HPS invasion...this is one of them.

Where is it? Question
joe_347V   [Mar 11, 2012 at 10:03 PM]
Near Newmarket!

I went (past) Newmarket lately and didn't see any MV poles.
joe_347V   [Mar 11, 2012 at 11:29 PM]
It's in quite an obscure part of Newmarket, did you go on the street in the Streetview link?
MercuryVapor175   [Mar 12, 2012 at 12:07 AM]
Nope.

Unfortunately, either the lamp or the ballast in this blew as it was out when I went by it recently... Confused

Greater Toronto Area aka GTA looks like Grand Theft Auto lol!
joe_347V   [Jul 23, 2015 at 10:21 PM]
That's what I always thought too especially after the Rob Ford crack incidents a few years ago.
