The following photographs were taken on Saturday, 27th November 2010. To paraphrase a line from a famous poem, the "frosty wind made [me] moan" whilst taking these pictures!
In something of an 'arty' photograph, this column supporting a 1980s' Thorn Beta 5 is virtually on the boundary (the 'upper' one, perhaps?) between two terraced properties.
A Philips MI 26 lantern was nearby.
The new lighting was not yet operational at the time of photographing; this is evidenced by the presence of snow on the canopies.
Another MI 26 (fitted to a Stewart & Lloyd column this time) existed on the opposite side of the road.
A similar style of column continued for the next installation, although a top-entry Beta 5 was fitted here. The above column probably once supported such a lantern as well; the top-entry elbow being removed when the MI 26 was fitted. Visible in the background is the new column; owing to its height, it cannot be installed up against the house, as doing so would foul the roof overhang.
Another side-entry Beta 5 followed.
A final MI 26 existed on the corner near where the road became Camden Street. If you are wondering why the installation appears somewhat out of proportion alongside the new 6m column, the reason is that an old bracket is fitted to a modern column; the latter probably dating from the early-mid 2000s. The original column would have been shorter, and the approximate 5m height would have been made up with the combination of the column and bracket heights.
