Lamps on the Horizon, 1880

If you look closely at this drawing - a view from Cleveland's west side - you can see the 150-foot tall masts which towered over the city, holding the Brush Arc Lamps which lit up Public Square. Just one year prior in 1879, Brush's electrical street-lighting system was unveiled in Public Square.
