the great light way

In the early part of the twentieth century electricity was cheap and cities displayed their progress with lots of downtown lighting.  I remember that a town where I lived in Massachusetts had a slogan in the early twentieth century that said "electricity is cheap.  Use it freely".

Here is what Portland did.

Wow! Awesome picture!Of course, nowadays big cities also are not likely to save electricity)) On the other hand, they use it in not that stylish way.
