A few years ago, we were able to rescue some Historical Detroit street lights from the scrap heap. We are in the process of restoring these poles and are missing some parts and are looking for any additional peices or whole poles that may be floating around. I have attached a few photos of the style we are currently working on.

As I mentioned in another thread, Odd Fellow's Antiques in Berkley has a large piece of historic light. It's the entire lamp portion. Check the Historic Lights thread.

Nice! These look like the ones taken out of service along Van Dyke or Davison in the last few years. Maybe the PLD can help you (although I've had no luck with them). Its worth a try anyway

I'm curious. How did you ever get a hold on these streetlights. I've seen people do it in the past, but I've never been able to. I even tried the Detroit Chamber of Commerce with no luck. Do I just need to be in the right place at the right time? Your restored unit looks beautiful by the way.

If you need access plate covers I might be able to cast them for you if you have an original. I made several for the bishop poles I restored. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need them.
