The Lamp Man

  ul. Piotrkowska 37     more than a year ago

Appearing in September 2007, this creation by Marcel Szytenchelm features a rather curious bloke climbing a ladder to fit a bulb onto a streetlight. Weighing more than a tonne the monument was unveiled to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the first electric streetlight to appear in the city. Replacing the old gas fired streetlamps, Łódź’s first electric light was once found on this very spot, right outside what was in those days regarded as the most exclusive shop in town – the American ‘Diamant Palace.’
