Save the historic street lamps on Van Ness Avenue
From San Francisco Beautiful:
In 1947, Friedel Klussman stood up to City Hall and stopped the demolition of our iconic Cable Cars. Now, another landmark needs your help.
The unique street lamps that were installed on Van Ness Avenue in 1936 to create a “ribbon of light” leading to the newly opened Golden Gate Bridge are slated for destruction.
These lamps are graceful geographic markers that indicate to everybody that they are in San Francisco, but are set to be replaced. To me the new lamp concept looks like the scythe carried by the Grim Reaper but you be the judge.
Please Save Our Historic Lamps!
