yet another pair from that same corner in Rancho Santa Fe.. notice the nice termination of this festoon lighting setup and the means of support. Early mornings these things are actually turned on when I pass by at ~6:30am

In Canada those lampholders use to be affixed to what we called Brewery Cord.It was a twisted pair and now has been Disallowed for about 6 years.
