Worlds Fair 1964-1965 Luminaire help disconnecting from pole

Recommended Posts

Hey, my name is Zach,  I have Worlds Fair 1964-65 Luminaire in my backyard that belonged to my dad.  It Lights up and everything. It has 7 or 8 cubes with 4-5 different colors when lit up.  My dad passed away a few years ago and I am looking to sell it but don't know how to disconnect the luminaire from the pole.  My dad left me with no information as to how he installed it so any info as to how much the luminaire weights and how to remove it would be of great help.  If you are curious as to what it looks like you can see it on eBay by typing in worlds fair street light.  It is the one lit up at night in the main photo.  Please give me a call when you get the chance I have a few people interested in buying it on eBay and would like to keep it in the worlds fair community but I need guidance as to how to disconnect it from the pole.  Give me a call if you can help.  516-734-1467.

-Zach

Hi, Zach, and welcome to the forum. It seems like everyone is away on vacation or something. Usually questions like this get some quick response. Sorry I don't know the answer to your question, but I think someone here should. Meanwhile, just an idea, can you remove a side of the tapered part and look inside? The mounting may be obvious from inside.

Hi, Zach. Was your dad the bagel man? Sorry to hear you lost him so young. I'll see if I can find any details on how the lights were attached at the Fair.
