How cities around the world design their lamp posts

The lamp post is a ubiquitous presence on any busy street.  These silent observers, casting light and soft shadows are one with the city and its people.  It is no wonder that cities around the world take pride in their lamp post design, which is quite obvious from the inherent design and craftsmanship of these neglected forms of ‘city decor’.  With great pride (are we the first ones to feature such a post?), we present a collection of uniquely crafted lamp posts from around the world.  Go on, enjoy the post!
