Just for my own interest, could anyone clarify

Street lights are wired in parallel to some extent, is there an average number in a chain?

You can see photocells on top of some, is that the master for the chain

On that basis, is the master live all the time and switches power via the photocell to the rest, or is there switching at the feeder pillar that acts as a master control for all of the lights it powers?

Not for anything in particular, was out with the dog last night when they came on and realised I don't really know how they are wired or controlled, sad I know...!

Thanks all

New here?
