Streetlights from Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Since I learned the history of street lighting began with lights on buildings, I have started to collect more building-based lights.  This one is unusual because it shows a Star of David on the lamp. It may be because this is a very old synagogue, being the first permanent temple in New Hampshire.   Most religious institutions I have seen show no designation on the lamp, such as shown on the second lamp below is from the Second Congregational Church.
