ARC LAMPS INSTALLED TO LIGHT CAMBRIDGE STREET

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Stimultaneous with the building of the first motion picture theater in Harvard Square comes the back ground for a "Great White Way" in Cambridge. Last night Cambridge Street to Inman Square, was illuminated for the first time by a line of large new are lamps on both sides of the street. The lights are constructed by the Cambridge Electric Light Company, and rival the line of lights at the entrance to Worcester by Holy Cross College.

The lights are the result of reports made to the Cambridge police by Officer George Kelly, who handles traffic at the intersection of Cambridge Street and Kirkland Street in front of Memorial Hall. Cambridge Street, which has always been one of the darkest of Cambridge highways at night, will now become one of the brightest.

Suggestions have been made that a similar series of lights be installed on Mount Auburn Street from Boylston Street to Central Square to make the dangerous corners which come in that stretch of road more safe for travel.
