From time to time it is fun to feature the little details of Greensboro that add to the local character. While most street lights today are are those bright, silver, buzzinng ones, the above lights represent a bygone era of clear, large-base, filament Edison bulbs. These lights are located on Spring Garden Street, at Howard Street across from Josephines and down from the entrance to Lindley Park. The ones around it have been replaced. We don't imagine these lights were very energy efficient; however, the sure are charming. If you are really interested in street lights, Wikipedia actually has some interesting photos and test (here). Some of the most interesting features of our city aren't at eye level!
We doubt these lights are unique worldwide; however, a google search of street lights didn't reveal any like this old-school duo. We hope they help you light up you weekend. Hope to see you donning your best fairy wings at the Summer Solstice Festival on the other end of Lindley's property at the Arboretum and Lindley Park.
