Street Lamps from Barcelona

Barcelona has some amazing street light fixtures from the 19th and 20th centuries. Most of them are functioning well. These old ones are made of cast iron and have such beautiful designs. Some of them are just single lamp holders while some have 3 or more. I showed two old lamps in my post: The Ramblas Ramble Walk, Barcelona. One was the Font de Canaletes, located at the Ramblas, where Barça fans usually gather to celebrate. The other was the lamp hanging from a Chinese dragon. This post has some more lamps, mostly taken as silhouette against the sky to get a clear outline against the sky.

There is an interesting article of 2012 which mentions: Qatar accused of counterfeiting 1000 street lamps. Spanish lighting brand Santa & Cole has launched a lawsuit accusing the state of Qatar of copying street lighting devised for Barcelona by Catalan designer Beth Galí in 1996.
