AN UPDATE HERE TO MY PREVIOUS POSTING....AND IT'S NOT GOOD!
Well, impending death of Mercury lighting???? I don't think so, not around Llandudno.
Found 4 to 5 streets in Penrhyn Bay-just about a mile or 2 east of Llandudno crammed full of Mercury. Some appear to be swan neck types and a couple of side entries-they are Eleco's I think.
One or two were dayburning (in Mercury) and apart from that looked in pretty good nick to be honest.
Penrhyn Isaf road
Bryn View Road ALL are in Penrhyn Bay-NOT in Llandudno itself.
Some lovely examples, if you are into Mercury lighing, you are in for a treat! They are very well preserved and the columns too. ENJOY!!! UNFORTUNATELY....
A VERY SAD UPDATE.....
I drove by Llandudno and Penrhyn Bay, Rhos on Sea area today...THEY ARE ALL GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I couldnt see ANY of them left, all gone. Replaced by a bottom entry grey Urbis Sapphires...
Its an absolute tragedy as they all appeared in really good condition. It must be about 30 or 40 examples binned. I hope some went to collectors.
Mercury is just getting rarer and rarer, soon the only ones left will be in the hands of private collectors...
It's so very sad.....RIP mercuries...
