Streelights – Lancaster

The City of Fort Worth appropriated $6,431 in 1936 to provide a “great white way” leading to the Frontier Centennial Grounds from nearby streets. Ornamental streetlight standards consist of a pinkish concrete octagonal shaft above a flaring base. Bronze casing, base and finial embellish the bulbous glass globe. Forty-six streetlamps remain in the area; a few retain their original globes, but most have been restored with replica globes under a City of Fort Worth rehabilitation program.
