Highly Ornate Light Buttons

My Lucky Number’s One saw these somewhere yesterday. They’re a mite more ornate than last year’s San Carlos Street Light Buttons, which were also spotted in April. Would you call this new specimen Art Deco? Art Deco Light Buttons? Is this phenomenon confined to early spring?

  1. I took this either on Bush St. or Pine just West of Fillmore. It was pretty amazing in person.

    Those lights come every spring & fall with this intensity. Its the reflection off of ‘Pill Town” AT 21st & Capp St. Art Deco? I don’t think so.

  4. If I were asked to apply a name from a historic style, I’d go with Op Art: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Op_art.

    It’s on Pine between Pierce and Steiner, but closer to the Steiner side. There is some construction going on at the corner, so I think these are new because I’ve never noticed them before.
