I’m so excited that the Detroit Historical Society has started a regular post of maps from their archives!
“In 1897, the Public Lighting Commission mapped every street light in the city, differentiating tower lights and single pole lights. Published by The Calvert Lith. & Eng. Co.”
We attempted to FOIA the current locations of streetlights from the Public Lighting Authority (PLA) and were told we couldn’t have the data. Anyone have the data and willing to share? DetroitData.org
