Arch Lights at Christmas

Ornamental incandescent light bulbs hang over the streets of downtown Green Bay, 1916. While the arch lights were in use throughout the year, they were most beneficial during the Holiday season, when many shops remained open during the December evenings prior to Christmas. By the early 1920s, the lights were replaced by more efficient post-mounted lamps placed along the curb.
