January Light: Provosts’ lamps

lamplight trio of squares today. The residence of the Provost (Mayor), or Lord Provost, used to be denoted by a special decorative streetlight in Scottish towns and cities. Many still exist. The daylight example above is from Lanark, the twilight shot is from Broughty Ferry near Dundee, and the lamp taken in darkness is from Glasgow. Linked to Becky’s January Squares Challenge – words ending in light.
