The Nostalgia Series: Antique Street Lights for “Old World” Charm
Union Metal’s Nostalgia Series features original pole designs that date back more than a century in some cases. We own these original designs because we designed them way back when — and helped towns and streets all across the country light the way for their residents and visitors.
More than 4400 cities and towns installed their first electric lighting with Union Metal standards. We’ve
maintained a comprehensive historic register from that era, including locations,
designs, and photographs. Available to architects and historical societies,
this register helps in determining the exact designs used generations ago.
Back then, these street lights and traffic signal poles were desired for their modern designs. Today, it is the classic, decorative nature that accounts for their popularity. These antique-styled poles create a charming, “old-world” feel for modern Main Streets and Downtown Districts in towns across the country.
From restoration and renewal to new development projects, the Nostalgia Lighting Series sets the standard for excellence by blending historic designs with Union Metal’s proven manufacturing expertise and advanced technology.
Decorative Lighting Meets State-of-the-Art Technology
Though the designs remain original, the technology behind them is cutting-edge. As with all of our modern street lighting, traffic signal, sports lighting, and other light pole solutions, Union Metal uses the finest steel and aluminum construction, and enhances every pole we produce to be strong, long-lasting, and corrosion-resistant.
Nostalgia Series antique and decorative street poles are available in numerous
designs ensuring that you find the decorative
lighting solution that is just right for your needs.
