Elegant Light Standards/ Sepia Scenes


Many towns in Central Ontario are proud of their heritage, and one way they demonstrate this is to decorate their main streets with vintage-looking decorations such as light standards. They certainly do have charm!

They do look nice in sepia! And I'm sure they make the street pretty and welcoming, too.

Charming and quite ornate.
Rafael mentioned England and when I saw them I was thinking Dickens. :)

The light standards must make the street look very decorative. Do they do them up for the holidays?

These ornate street lights are so elegant. I like the old-fashioned charm. It does add to a street scape.
