Streetlight from the Old Bellerive Country Club, St. Louis, MO U.S.A.

The Mercantile Library of St. Louis has many many treasures to explore.  One day when I was there, I saw this streetlight (of course I would notice it).  I was thrilled when I asked it’s origin to learn that it had been a part of the Old Bellerive Country Club which was located in Normandy, Missouri until the early 1970s.  They sold the land and that land is now the University of Missouri – St. Louis (where I work).  Of course, then I had to include it in my collection.

New Windsor Square Street Lights

Today I read a blog about a neighborhood in Los Angeles that decided to replace their street lights.  The author of the blog, Glen Norman,  and his colleague, Chin Thammasaengsri,  decided to chronicle the event.  I thought that if you like my streetlights, you might like his chronicle, and so I am sharing that today with a link to his blog.  Thank you Glen Norman!
