Presumably from the early 1970s, this clutch of colour leaflets revealed a sample of ELECOís columns, brackets and lanterns.
Again, itís difficult to tell if this is complete, but some trends have developed since the last
catalogues from the mid 1960s.
The number of columns, particularly concrete options, had decreased dramatically. Only the slimline concrete columns were available.
The number of mercury fittings remained relatively constant, but the sodium range had changed dramatically.
The SOX range had become established, offering a large range of wattages from 35 through to
180. ELECO responded by dropping all their older Goldenray lanterns, and creating an entire family focused around
their new Goldenray design. Furthermore, a new lantern design, the GR550 family, was
added to the range where a gear-in-head lantern of low wattage was required.
The post top family was rationalised and increased with several new quirky designs appearing in the catalogue.
Lanterns with photocells were also offered for the first time.
A date could be guessed, as the leaflets often refered to the newly revised B.S. 1308, which
was expected soon, and the BS Kite Mark was dated May 1970. Additionally,
there was extra pain caused by the switch to meteric, but all B.S.P. measurements remained stubbornly imperial.
