Hello to all streetlight's enthusiats !  :)

I am coming here to get some help about non identified lanterns. I have 8 photos, included 4 I have taken in UK, and 4 if have taken abroad.

For these four first ones, I have taken them in UK

Do you know who made each of them and the names ?

N°01 (photo from Cambridge)
Image

N°02 (photo from London)
Image

N°03 (photo from London), design close to a VEELITE Supralite but a little bit different
Image

N°04 (photo from a railway station near Dover)
Image


For the two following, I have taken them in Blankenberge (BELGIUM)

However, I am pretty sure that these two lanterns come from UK.

N°05 : taken in Blankenberge as described above. I did not have seen it elsewhere in Belgium. I can say that this luminaire is also used at Inverness Airport : https://goo.gl/maps/PCnizudymB82

Image

N°06 : also taken in Blankenberge. I did not have seen it elsewhere in Belgium and I am pretty sure that it comes from the same company as the previous one.

Image


From Greece

N°07 : I am not sure that this one below comes from UK. I have taken the photo at Piraeus. However, it looks like a British design.

Image


From Denmark

N°08 : I am not sure that this one below comes from UK. Photo taken at Copenhague. However, it looks like a British design.

Thank you everyone for your help  :)

Number 2 is almost certainly a DW Windsor Cradle.

Number 6 is a Holophane lantern; they were commonly used in the UK in B&Q car parks.

In my area, there was (before they were replaced with LEDs) a light I don't know the brand and other had a thing on the back which, according to the people that lived behind it, was to block the light, any ideas?

They appear to be quite common in council buildings and public spaces :?:

Philips Mi26, 35W SOX, fitted with a metal screen to the column bracket to prevent the back spill from the lantern shining (as much) into bedroom windows.

The lantern was very common before LED took over and the shade is reasonably common as well.

Unfortunately, I can't provide a photo, however I can provide a description.
At my high school, there is a Coughtrie light, it is wall mounted but doesn't have a neck and the bowl has turned light purple, it also appears to be plastic. I've also noticed these lights are typical for public buildings from the 1970s if that helps :?:
