Modernist Lamp Post at Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona
© All Rights Reserved
One of the distinguishing traits of Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona, are these modernist lamp posts on both sides of the street. Unlike gas street lighting installed in 1852, these lamp posts with benches date back from 1906 and were designed by Pere Falqués. There are 31 in all as far as I am concerned and were restored in the 80's during a remodelling campaign in the city. Please examine this other shot of the lamp post for more details.
