In the poignant narrative “San Diego’s Historic Streetlights” by the OB Rag, the enduring charm of San Diego’s historic streetlights, spanning over a century, faces an unwarranted threat of destruction. Despite their structural integrity and potential for longevity with minor repairs, these iconic fixtures are slated for replacement by the City of San Diego, sparking community outcry.

Industries stands firmly against this misguided initiative, advocating for the preservation of these cultural landmarks. The proposed demolition not only disregards the intrinsic value of the existing infrastructure but also perpetuates a cycle of wastefulness and erasure of cultural heritage.

These historic streetlights serve as silent witnesses to San Diego’s evolution, embodying the craftsmanship and design ethos of bygone eras. They contribute to the city’s sense of place and identity, connecting residents and visitors alike to its rich history.

Emphasizing that the decision to replace these historic streetlights with modern fixtures is unjustified and counterproductive, it suggests that with reasonable repairs and minimal restoration, the existing structures can continue to illuminate the city for generations, preserving its cultural legacy.

By advocating for the preservation of San Diego’s historic streetlights, the aim is to safeguard an integral part of the city’s cultural heritage, fostering a sense of continuity and connection within the community.
