January Light: Street of Light

The Street of Light was a Christmas installation in Edinburgh a few years ago. I found several shots which lent themselves to the square format, but when I spotted the *Belisha beacon bottom right of this one it was the obvious choice – two different kinds of streetlight, and the beacon counts as lamplight too.

Part of Becky’s January Squares Challenge: words ending in light.

*Belisha beacon: an amber-coloured globe lamp on a black and white pole, marking pedestrian crossings. Named after Leslie Hore-Belisha (1893–1957), the Minister of Transport who introduced them in 1934.

    I was sorry I missed that particular display as it looked impressive. That has to be one of the more unusual double barrelled names.
