They don't make them like they used to...



The next time you have to consider maintenance protocols for your lighting design, or the next time an electrician has to move a 20 foot ladder for the 50th time in a day, consider this wonderful bit of old time technology and say it like you mean it: “They really don’t make them like they used to”. 

This photo is of a streetlight maintenance vehicle owned by the Philadelphia Electric Company in 1910. Just one more application specific tool who’s time has come and gone. Eat your heart out manlifts everywhere!

If you happen to have any cool photos of old-school lighting tech we would love to see them!
