“really tall streetlights”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

In 1898 I'm sure these were an engineering marvel, but these lights really aren't a destination. You hardly notice if you're standing right next to one.

“Bit of History”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

At one time Austin and Paris, France were the only cities with these towers. The towers were the source of light at night time in Austin for many years. The city is doing all it can to preserve them.
