A streetlight on the Brooklyn Bridge

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.
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!
