I am able to help you, a little bit... :)

The first one seems to be this one, and... it is an unknown one to me. And I must say that I have seen it only two times.

To second one is definitely a GIRARDIN 3820, which has also become extreme rare nowadays. I have only seen it in disused areas...

You can also see a classical French luminaire in your photos, the MAZDA EPA.

To finish about French streetlighting... I could say that the PHILIPS HRP you have pictured was one of the rare products that France and UK had in common in 60's.

Lantern ID is not my hot subject - I was never much good at spot the difference quizzes.

So these are probably quite easy, but i'd be obliged if you can help out.

https://goo.gl/maps/yH3p47sjtY1USKyh8

https://goo.gl/maps/kKHfaHfq872Tfv3T9 - was Sox now strangely effective with an LED retrofit. - That estate used to have a right old mix of oddballs, but its thinning out a bit now.

https://goo.gl/maps/5jEtJsMVt33sBa977 - Sox

https://goo.gl/maps/Nkestk4TSrwi4Mnk6 - increasingly fitted with LED retrofit lamps and pretty damn good they look too.

https://goo.gl/maps/qqSqci82GRwfh67s9 - until recently this street was 95% these - seem to be dying with gear failures, what wattage are these beasts?

https://goo.gl/maps/CMFfpCFfaJHvMVzX9 - oddball casual replacement

https://goo.gl/maps/9G2pob9v1dvff58WA - again lots of LED retrofits appearing in these.

The first looks to be a P157, which is actually a 90W lantern, although 55W SOX would fit.

Thorn Gamma 6.
Thorn Gamma 6 wide wide canopy.
GEC Z9480.
Probably GEC Z9554, but possibly Revo Hyperion B, they look very similar and the image from GSV isn't good enough to tell them apart. 135W SOX.
Philips Selenium.
Phosco P153 on a CU Avenue 2D column. Quite a find, lantern and column.

Lamp looks to fill bowl when lit, so possibly running 90w!

Bury have a couple of MA series 90w sized canopy's running 55w so they arnt against running smaller lamps.

Would expect the GEC, very little REVO stuff around Bury that I can think of, ill try and get a better shot before they all die.

There are quite a few surviving on that estate, the bowls are in poor condition though. I think the columns are saving the lanterns.

Looks like the same column on this estate too, but without the interesting lanterns https://goo.gl/maps/QyvuMZPWKmqkXRPB6



Here are a few more to have a crack at.

1. Kellett Street Bolton - 1 of two running SON possibly 50W   only 1 works   -    https://goo.gl/maps/ua3Y6yLY2zJibVcY9
2. Ringley Road Bury/Bolton Boundary. This think was out for about 8 years then they repaired it and left it dayburning for 18months - since replaceed with an ARC https://goo.gl/maps/tHUDzBeyMXDBzdWU8 (can be seen dayburning in later images)
3. Harwood Road, Tottington - https://goo.gl/maps/WMsck8z4UCCNY4Bo6 - Been dayburning for at least 15years, the lamp never seems to die! A couple of nearby identical lanterns have recently been replaced with LED lanterns.
4. Possibly same as 3? https://goo.gl/maps/Pd78dmDcPKcap1sGA https://goo.gl/maps/MSCbaFVpKPu3ew8y7 lovely lanterns arsey people on the street shouted at me for taking photos of them!

1. P109
2. Revo Hyperion B but the early version.
3 and both in 4 are all GEC Z9480.
