I'm not getting the love for acorn & bucket type heads in Toronto. I much prefer a modern looking light fixture. Just personal preference I guess. I do agree with hopefully getting more power lines underground as conversions take place.
I like the simplicity and timeless look of Toronto's venerable street light. It's just a simple aluminum goose neck with a simple acorn head with a gum drop shaped glass cover. It's my favourite out of the endless variations and different light fixtures used in Toronto. The metal halide light is bright white so colour is a non issue.





LED test fixtures have no style at all.
