Great! Can you post a list of some of the things even if you don't currently have photos to post? I think we all thought you just had the Luminaires.

That spotlight matches the ones that were in the towers that were pointed at the Unisphere.

That inside light fixture is from the Egypt Pavilion.

There were five spotlight towers surrounding the Unisphere. Each tower had as many as 21 of these spotlights mounted in the tower. So there were something like 100 of them there at the Court of the Presidents.

Here are a couple of pictures of the main exhibit room at the Egypt Pavilion, showing the light fixtures. There were at least six of the type of fixture we see in the picture at Penn Hills. Four white ones and two gold ones.

Hey, Penn, those are great colors. Note to buyers...Flipping the panels around will reveal much of the original bright color. The sides that have been exposed to the elements for 47 years have faded considerably. The backsides of most of those colored panels should be quite colorful (assuming they were never flipped before, which they probably weren't). Here's photo of what I found with mine. Quite a difference.

I wonder of any of the poles have the label on them that identifies where the pole was at the fair? I can't locate that thread, does anybody have that photo of the label that Randy Lambertus posted?

What is the structure for discounts if multiple fixtures are purchased?

What should we be looking for on eBay in order to find them? I'm having a tough time searching for them. Thanks.
