There is so much stray light in LV I often wonder why they bother adding more with the streetlights! But great to see the two technologies side by side here. And the wonderful old shops, I really miss F.W. Woolworth's and their Winfield-branded lamps which have recently shown up a few times on LG.

I am afraid that the era of department stores is a little before my time, although I do have fond memories as a child of going to "De Bijenkorf" in Holland with my grandmother. Definitely an atmosphere I wish I could've enjoyed.

Streetlights are most often overlooked by society as we go about in life. I have had an interest and fascination for them since I was very little. I love drawing detailed city-scapes and the streetlights are my signature. They always play an important role in my drawings. Like Bob Ross' clouds.
