New lights are grim in streets

I was wondering what the Victorians thought when gas street lighting was first introduced.

Maybe it was, “well it ain’t much but it’s better than nothing”. I have to say I feel a bit like that Victorian person about the new LED street lighting. Cheaper they may be but progress they are definitely not.

I can sum up my impression of them in one word, a word that goes quite well with the Victorian era that we have been plunged back into (well street lighting wise any way) - Grim.
