Me again  :lol: I have only a few more now...

https://ibb.co/BVwT21N possibly a GEC ZD10839? Saltburn, Marine Parade near Saltburn House

https://ibb.co/rQwNb5b Roundabout outside Guisborough to the south east

https://ibb.co/BBzSQxk Humber Bridge, Hull Side

https://ibb.co/RBLKy7v This is on the M62, west of the farm. I'm pretty sure this is a SON lantern. I have never seen it anywhere else apart from the M62. Identified as an Urbis ZX4 possibly

I do have questions about lighting in Denmark and to some extent Croatia, I see Denmark has a lot of what I have accidentally (while looking up thorn rivieras and some alpha lanterns) identified to be Thorn Victors. Denmark also seems to have a lot of suspended lighting and until recently some nice florescent (maybe SOX) lanterns too if anyone can help with those?

Thank you, I think you're right about the first 2 but I am unsure about the last, I couldn't find any information on it, while looking up the ZX4 it seems that that name is used for a large post top lantern and maybe this one, I'm sure I've seen it or a similar one used at zebra crossings.

I hope someone else is around that can help with the rest too.  :)

Ah sorry for the confusion, the Schreder TX was sold here as the Urbis ZX4.  The lantern extremely common in Belgium (it’s called the TX there) but hardly exists here which is why I naturally call it by the Belgian name (same goes for other lanterns that are extremely common abroad but rare here e.g. the Indalux Viento / Abacus Camino).

It comes in all shapes and sizes and is usually post top, which is why the Google images may look different, but it’s definitely a TX/ZX4.

It's no problem man  :)

At some point I'm gonna try again to identify the other lanterns myself but I'd greatly appreciate any input anyone has

All teardrop lanterns look the same to me, I’m useless at identifying lanterns like those.  Although by chance I’ve found out that this lantern is a CU Phosco/Phosware P107 :).

I'd check in DW Windsor Strand as the teardrop psudo old fashioned lamps.

I'm back! I've added what things are identified as to the list. I've done a bit of research since those months but I'm still none the wiser.

The first is a Tamlite Tamcourt. Surprisingly it still seems to be available. However, after checking with Tamlite, only the LED versions are now available.

The 2nd appears to be a bespoke 1950s Stewarts and Lloyd column with some type of wellglass fitting - sort of like a bigger industrial version of the common domestic Coughtrie style fitting.
