Out with the New, In with the Old

by Paul Williams

Out with the New, In with the Old

Amsterdam Streetlight CloseupToday in Amsterdam, in a park near my home, I saw city workers replacing the new, contemporary lights [pictured, left] with this old-school style [right].

While this small image is a big grainy, you can see that these 'new' lights are styled after old gas lamps. They have more charm than the contemporary lamps. Atop the fixture is a crown. Decorative crowns adorn fixtures and architecture throughout Amsterdam to celebrate Dutch royalty.

It is pretty neat that the city is embracing this old style look. Just goes to show ya, newer isn't always better.
