Expo 67 Street Lamp

Photo of the famous Expo 67 street lamps. These ingenious devices consisted of a fibreglass-covered cement tube in which was placed the light bulb. It shone straight up to an inverted plate which reflected and diffused the light, thereby allowing for a well-lit site without the lights producing any glare. While many of these lights can still be found on the site, none of them are functional any longer.
