BEDFORD TO HAVE STONE POSTS FOR LIGHTS
Stone posts from a beautiful design of Charles Tharp, a local draftsman, will be used in Bedford's cluster light system which was made assured last night by the donation of the posts to the city, says the Bedford MAIL. The donation of the stonemen of the city has made it possible to go ahead with the work immediately as the committees have practically enough funds with which to complete the work. It was said this morning that the work would go right ahead, and that it was thought that only bad weather could cause a delay in the installation.
The stone men have signified their willingness for the past several months to make a handsome donation along the line of the stone post proposition, and the proposition that was submitted by them last night was accepted by the committee from the Industrial and Merchants Association.
