    Astonishing bronze element of a Parisian lamppost.
    It is an identical replica to those with four lights near the Louvre, with a dolphin decoration, late 19th early 20th century
    You have surely never paid attention to the lampposts in the Place du Louvre, yet the feet are ultimately decorated with a dolphin and the sound is very representative of the decorations of the time.
    In 1829, the first official tests of public gas lighting took place, Place du Carrousel, rue de Rivoli.…
    The gas is transported from the plant located in Paris under the sidewalks in wooden pipes. There are then up to 1,500 lantern lighters.
    In 1878 the avenue de l'Opéra was therefore the first public road lit by electricity. Candelabras stand successively on the Place du Théâtre-Français, at the Carrousel, at the Bastille, at the Halles centrale.
