First installed in the early 1900’s, the City-operated street lighting system reflects various communities and L.A.’s history through the Depression, the 1932 Olympic Games, and the age of craftsmanship that built streetlights throughout the 40’s. As the age of manufacturing took over, Los Angeles witnessed the disappearance of its historical streetlights replaced by the standard pole. The typical streetlight system transformed into galvanized steel round or fluted poles. This new design represents the transition into the age of the so-called Smart City. It is intended to be the new standard fixture in the city and will replace an anticipated 1200 existing fixtures every year.
