UPDATE 30/11/08

Documentary and photographic evidence has been located that stated that Salisbury was supplied with 1300 Stanton 7b columns fitted with a smaller scale version of the Arch Finned bracket as fitted to the main road Stanton 6b columns. Open reflector GEC Z9420 SO/SOH lanterns were used.

It is therefore likely that all 7b columns within the city and possibly surrounding villages like Durrington may have had this type of columns and lanterns – although it is possible that in villages, mercury lanterns could have been in use.

All of the above side road lanterns can also be found on wooden pole mounted brackets. GEC 9480/9532/36/38 and be found top and side entry when pole mounted.

Within city centre, wall mount brackets are common, approx 2m outreach fitted with either GEC 9480/9532 side entry.
