This is pretty lacking in specific info, but…
My great grand-uncle ‘aquired’ a streetlamp from the '60s or '70s, and put it in the backyard of a family property. It has shone (shined?) brightly for years, but about 6 years ago quit working when it was cold, and now doesn’t work at all. The family tale is that once it burns out, it’s a throwaway; it cannot be restored, refilled with filament, lightbulb changed, anything. Anyone know if that’s true?
I don’t know any make, model, etc
It has a tube running from the lamp, down the arm, to a container, and that container is connects to the electrical output from the house. Quite possibly homemade though.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
