Hey guys,

Anyone have an idea on what these poles were used for? They are about 10ft tall. I thought they may be sign poles but cant figure out how a sign bracket would mount. The way they are tapered at the top it looks like something may have sat on it. Light poles maybe? They should be Gulf as they are at an old Gulf bulk plant and they looks as if once were painted blue. I dont want them to go for scrap if they are of value.

Thanks

Don't appear to be stout enough for Signs, Island light poles IMO.

They look like island light poles and probably had an extended flourscent light fixture sticking out in opposing directions.
They look attractive enough to rescue and could be used with a harp light at the top!

I like them and I agree that they were used as island light posts.

I believe Kevin is exactly right, they look real familiar to what my father had at his station's island.

They are right it is a light pole. There is a old station a few miles from me that has one still up with lights on top.
