Night. . .

Here are our own golden globed cast iron beauties pictured here as night descends. These distinctive cluster street lamps grace Pioneer Square and illuminate the street with charm and period details from the late 1800s. They are one of Seattle's early expressions of civic pride. The first street lights in this area of Seattle were powered by coal gas. I can't find specific information on these lovely street lamps' history or designer, but I do love them.
