Seen Around Town : Danville

Throughout our town, crews are exchanging the old wooden street lights for new metal fixtures. Here, the old wooden poles are loaded on the truck and the men begin to raise the new metal one into place.

"Pole improvement programme"-do they do one for the Ukrainians and Romanians as well? It would only be fair!

Cannot imagine what wooden poles are like for street lighting, you'd better get used to this activity, South Shields has just had its street lighting renewed, it took four years!

Everything here is concrete. Hit a wooden pole head on and I have, it breaks. Hit a concrete pole and it beaks you.

Always sad to see the old wooden poles replaced by metal ones. There is a warmth that goes with them! Nicely captured Dulcie! ;-)
