There's still a lot of unknowns about Powerlite like the B2228 and B2214, that modular light on the first page. etc though.

Still be on the lookout for that tag shot.

I think most of the info on Powerlite that's online is already in here, time to dig somewhere else I guess.

It's possible MTO used a lot of Powerlite lumes during the 60s and 70s.

I wonder if the MTO might even have some old fixtures like B2213 and B2215s around anywhere? Shocked

They have some old clamshells at their yard near 400 and Sheppard so it's possible they have a old Powerlite stashed away.

MTO does have a couple of B2215s (conv. to HPS) left on the Conestoga in KW though. 

Oh and check out this shot of Powerlite's offices in the mid 50s.

They might be! But I think they could be B2255s too.
