Episode 258 – Street Lamps

“Holmes pointed to the street lamp” [SIXN]  

It's impossible to think about Victorian London without imagining street lamps. We're most familiar with the gas-powered versions, but there were other iterations before.

We also have an announcement about a special episode only for our Patreon supporters. Be sure you're on board to take part in that.
