This style street lamp is commonly seen throughout El Centro. Some are in fine condition, others need a little paint as well as repair.

What a beautiful lamp. Is there anything that isn't beautiful in Mexico? Your blog is a delight.

beautiful building and a lamp, we have similar in Tuzla and they too need a little bit of work to make them look better.

This one looks brand new. Well, as new as can be. Doesn't seem like Mexico though. It's given me an image of turn-of-the-century England. Flower girls and their baskets, foppish men and their walking sticks...

Yes, Kate, you said it for your photo as well as mine, "there's a beauty in simplicity". This black against white photo is a joy to see.

The architectural and design features in your photo suggest a European influence.
Are you sure you're in Mexico?

Lovely filligree for a street lamp. Much nicer than the utilitarian ones by my house.

Hello Kate in there faraway!
Your photo is just elegant, but I would like to see a photo about you and a street, just a moment, when you
are taking a right angle of view :)

Nice, happy days to you!

Really lovely. I like the lamp architectural features and contrast with wall of course, but what I love more is the angle chosen to take the photo. Lovely.

Yes, I am indeed in Mexico! The European influence can be explained by the fact that was historically a high concentration of Germans in this town.
