#tbtPrimelite: For 50+ years, globe lights have been an important part of Primelite’s success. These decorative exterior globes from the late 1980’s were an early example of blow-molded globes, which is now common in the construction of modern lighting globes. Just imagine these lights illuminating your yards, streets, and parks! Sometimes retro really is cool!
Here is an original scan of our calendar page highlighting these globes.
