  ABACUS AL4000 'Orion' post top Lantern

The Abacus AL4000 'Orion' lantern is a modern concept-type post-top lantern that has found favour with both local councils and commercial concerns such as Tesco, who use them to light their supermarket car parks in the UK. The lantern pictured is seen in a Council carpark in Sutton In Ashfield in Nottinghamshire (the town where it was manufactured). My thanks to Davy Warren, Andrew Stanley, and Tim Luckett for the information on this lantern.
