- Notice the lantern in front of the doctor's house. In Dr. George C.R. Hall’s words, “Along about this time-– pre-WWI, I remember my father with several others pioneering street lights. Posts were erected at intersections and a glass container put on top. This had an opening, and John Griggs used to carry oil lanterns, about 25 on a stick balanced on his shoulder, and after dark put a lantern into the glass container. These were collected in the morning, filled with coal oil, and the glasses ready for the next night.”
