Any idea what this is? https://www.flickr.com/photos/8050359@N ... 384921466/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/8050359@N ... 384921466/ https://www.alamy.com/shot-of-humber-br ... 00059.html the most similar thing I was able to find was the Phosco P220 but it's obviously not that. They were later replaced by Philips TV and GEC Z8600, the GEC lanterns later replaced with Philips Iridiums.

Plus what about the other 4 I posted earlier?

They are Phosco P224s ,which were really high mast lanterns. Birmingham City Council used them in a similar capacity as single lanterns.

Those Phosco lanterns were also the original fittings on the QE2 Dartford Crossing on the bridge itself, before they got replaced with Iridiums just over a decade later and P850s in recent years.

Apologies but I couldn't find any other information on this lantern even with the knowledge that it was probably made by Phosco, the P224 appears to have been a small SOX lantern and not the one I am looking for, I tried to look for photos of the QE2 bridge to find something from there looking at photos from the 90s but all i saw was Alpha 3s, MA60s and ZX3s sadly.

In one of Mike Barford's catalogues it is listed as P220/4.

The original lanterns were 250W SON. The change to SGS253 Iridiums saw a power reduction down to 150W SON lamps.

It would appear that it must actually be the one I originally found, http://www.midlandcountiesstreetlightin ... 5aug05.jpg the shape here is just slightly different so I guess it is a different variant of the same lantern. I had found these that seem to confirm that. http://www.streetlightonline.co.uk/Cata ... nroad1.pdf http://www.streetlightonline.co.uk/Cata ... sheet1.pdf on the second document you can see them in the background even.

LED lanterns have been introduced in Blackpool, replacing PFI Evolos, but will anyone be able to identify this?
But this will happen:
Blackpool Council has unveiled plans to switch to LED bulbs for the town’s street lighting in a move which could save up to £6m.

Holophane R-Line.  Admittedly one of the better looking LED lanterns on the market at the moment.
