"The range of standard tubular steel columns include designs for mounting heights 25 feet, 15 feet and 13 feet, plain, circular and fluted. S&L designs have been submitted to and approved by the Royal Fine Arts Commission."

"These columns are readily adaptable for sodium and mercury discharge lanterns of the pendant or side entry type. They can also be made suitable for use with flourescent lanterns." - Highway Reference Book 1951

Two Tubular Steel Lighting Columns are exhitied at the 1938 conference. One is a Gas Lighting Column of the reservoir type, 25' mounting height, which has been supplied to many authorities. The reservoir principle is that the column itself conveys the gas from service connection to lamp, eliminating internal piping or connections. It carries a 10-light Majestic Lamp from Kempton & Co. with multiplane reflectors supported by the WASK gear of Walter Slingsby. The other is an Electric Lighting Column, also 25' mounting height, with a base section sufficiently large to accommodate switch gear and fitted with a flush steel door. It is fitted with a Z8128 Di-fractor lantern from the GEC. - APLE Conference Programme 1938

Are exhibiting a lighting column, 15-ft. mounting height, complete with swan-neck bracket and fitted with switch-gear, condensers etc., also lantern and globe and suitable cast-iron collar and cast-iron footpiece for ornamentation if required. Also exhibiting a Pillar Type of lighting column complete with lantern and lighting unit and a suitable cast-iron base for ornamentation (completed with collars and footpieces). - APLE Conference Programme 1946

Stewarts And Lloyds display at Princes Park, Southport, during the APLE Conference. - Advert, 1947

Have erected on the sea-front twelve Tubular Steel Poles: (1) Eight poles of two types for Group A roads: Bracket-Arm and Shepherd's Crook. Four have Pendant Lanterns and four have Side-Entry Lanterns; (2) Four poles of two types for Group B roads: Swan-Neck and Pillar. Poles are shown of the Plain Circular and Fluted form. The poles have no added ornamentation. Many engineers condiser ornamentation not only unnecessary on aesthetic grounds but undesirable from a utility and maintenence point of view. - APLE Conference Programme 1947
