Looks to be fairly recent as in less than 30 years old. Has a modern looking ballast from what I can make out through the opening. Don't think I've ever seen this before!

Thats brave running overheads on a steel pole! Shocked

Haha! It was common as hell out there. Very rare to have underground cables on the streetlighting. Glasgow has a lot of overhead cables on steel columns too! Shocked

Well, they had them back in the early 80's and appear to be still running strong!
