Albion’s Main Street lights before LED

ALBION – Most of our Vintage Orleans features are from a century ago. This one isn’t even quite a year old. It shows Albion’s Main Street while it was lit up with incandescent light bulbs.

The village has replaced about 30 of the those lights with new LED technology that use far less power and give a softer glow. The lights also have new globes that help direct the light downward.

A Hub reader, Wayne Burlison of Albion, took this photo last December. I didn’t have a pre-LED photo to compare the new lights with. Thanks, Wayne.
