LEDs lights in Columbus
Several years ago I was doing some personal research in the Winston County Journal, and ran across this item in the issue from Feb. 5, 1897. I thought this might be interesting in light (pun intended) of the upgrades planned in the street light in Columbus.
Feb 5, 1897 Winston County Journal: Columbus lighted by electricity -- For the first time in her history Columbus was lighted by electricity last week, and simultaneously there flashed from the forty lamps which had been placed throughout the city light which cannot be surpassed in brilliancy and quality by any city in the South.
No mention was made of exactly where the lights were placed in Columbus. An upgrade almost exactly 122 years after getting electric lights is a wonderful improvement in quality and cost savings. Columbus is doing something right.
